18th ANNUAL Latin American Cultural Week 2023

About LACW

Launched in November 2006, Latin American Cultural Week (LACW) is a New York City-wide annual festival, showcasing the richness and variety of the cultures of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain.
Partnering with organizations and artists from around the world, LACW is presented throughout the city’s five boroughs, and its goal is to present the highest quality art and artists to the broadest cross-section of the community. LACW provides a platform for increased visibility and recognition of Latin American, Caribbean and Spanish artistry and encourages people of all ethnic backgrounds to respect, recognize, and be enriched by the unique talents and treasures that every culture has to offer in the areas of music, dance, visual, performing arts, film, literature, and theatre.


“I hope your Latin American Cultural Week went well. Your program weaved together a varied and immensely interesting number of offerings”.
