About the Festival

The event is produced with the support of the Pittsburgh Hispanic Development Corporation and Casa San Jose. A portion of these proceeds directly benefit these organizations. The event supports and raises funds and awareness for Pittsburgh’s Latin-American community.

“The festival was founded in 2016 by Craig McCloud, who wanted to create an opportunity that benefitted food trucks/start-ups while also incorporating support for non-profits which serve Pittsburgh’s Latin-American community.”
