Atlantic City will rebound from postponing its festival last year to hold their huge celebration at Bader Field from noon to 8 p.m. In 2019, more than 7,000 attended the festival.

“This music-filled festival will feature live Latin music including bachata, bomba, cumbia, folkloric dancers, mariachi, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, hottest Latino DJs, performances, arts and crafts vendors, activities for both adults and children, a variety of authentic Latin-American food vendors and refreshments, free health and wellness screenings, as well as community support information booths, and much more,” Atlantic City Latino Festival organizers said.
