Background on La Fiesta Navideña

Celebrated by LP21 since the group’s establishment and as an official program since 1989, La Fiesta Navideña is a family-style event that focuses on Puerto Rican traditions and holiday celebrations by bringing together traditional and contemporary musical talents, crafts, and delectable food, all from the community, in a single event.  La Fiesta is but a taste of the celebrations offered throughout the Holiday Season within Puerto Rican and Latino homes and it represents the effort to spread these joyous festivities from the LP21 family to the community at large.
