HoLa Hora Latina is the home of the HoLa Festival, Knoxville’s only Latin American arts and culture festival, and the Casa HoLa Art Gallery and Artisan Shop at the Emporium for the Arts. This signature event features a rich mix of music, dance, food, arts, crafts, heritage tables, a Parade of Nations, and children's activities.
Our mission is to promote unity in the community by creating art, culture and communication bridges between the greater Knoxville and Latino communities and by encouraging education, participation and leadership.
The 2021 HoLa Festival celebrates the 21st anniversary of East Tennessee's Annual Heritage Month Celebration. Join us at the World's Fair Park Performance Lawn for a Kick Off Party on Saturday, September 25th, then the HoLa Family Festival on Sunday, September 26th.
