Hispanic Heritage Festival

Each year El Pueblo will host a Hispanic Heritage Festival during Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate all of the wonderful cultures represented in our city. 

El Pueblo's Hispanic Heritage Festival in Forest, Mississippi Was a Success!


We celebrated and learned about the culture of our Latinx community members. There was cultural food, dance, activities, and more!

The Hispanic Heritage Festival was held on October 15th with events starting at 9:00 a.m. and continuing until 5:00 p.m. This event will take place at Forest’s Gaddis Park.

The day’s events included:

  • Soccer  games
  • A beauty pageant
  • Dance performances
  • Live music
  • Cultural food and arts & crafts booths
  • Children’s activities tables
  • A Parade of Flags
