The Cville Sabroso Festival, our area’s only annual Latin American music and dance festival, is one of Sin Barreras’ premier events; and 2018 was our sixth year of great success, with 2,400 attendees. It was a bright, beautiful day for music and fun: for Latino and non-Latino families with young children and for people of all ages. Many more Hispanic families attended than in previous years—to our delight! Different nationalities performed their countries’ music and dance dressed in colorful national costumes. Abundant ethnic food came from Hispanic food providers. Meanwhile, UVA and other volunteers sat under a large tent and offered crafts and kids’ face-painting. Cville Sabroso is designed to show the richness of Hispanic society to the wider community. It has also become an integral part of Charlottesville’s cultural calendar and, for the first time, was partially financed with official City funds.
