CLAS Latin American & Caribbean Festival

40th Annual Latin American & Caribbean Festival


The Staff at the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at the University of Pittsburgh has made the decision to postpone the 40th Latin American and Caribbean Festival because it is unlikely that large gatherings of this nature will be possible without significant public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 this Fall.

First and foremost, we prioritize the safety of the participants, vendors and the general public and we want to celebrate this joyous event with peace of mind. For that reason, we are reprogramming the 40th Latin American and Caribbean Festival for Saturday, April 10, 2021, held in the same location (Wesley W. Posvar Hall Patio).

Jessica Craft, our Administrative & Program Assistant, will be the Festival Coordinator. This year she will be working alongside Luz Amanda Hank, Assistant Director for Partnerships and Programming, to organize the 40th Edition of the Festival. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Luz Amanda Hank at

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you in the Spring—mark your calendars: Saturday, April 10, 2021.

Everything you need to know about transportation, parking, accessibility, and more!
