Latinos Con Onda has become one of Birmingham’s most fun and inclusive experiences. This year’s event will celebrate their fourth anniversary with an exciting lineup of musicians, food, art and more from all over the world.

“We are Latinos Con Onda, we are a Latinx community bringing entertainment events to Birmingham, AL with a purpose to build a bridge between the Latinx community and all the diverse communities in Birmingham and its surrounding cities. We are focused on educating and creating acceptance for a happier and more inclusive life in our Magic City.”

Latinos Con Onda’s first party was at The Atomic Lounge where 37 people showed up.

“We didn’t have any social media. It was an experiment. We start texting our friends that we’re going to do this get-together—try to come. It was kind of a low turnout, but we had a ton of fun. It started growing, and growing and then we started our social media. It was more word-of-mouth back then.”

From there, they started expanding their parties to bigger venues like Trimtab, Mayawell and Ghost Train. At their third anniversary celebration, 1600 people showed up. 2000 guests is this year’s goal.

  • Vendors selling jewelry, art, vintage clothes and more
  • Delicious authentic cuisine, including:
    • Argentinian empanadas
    • Colombian and Venezuelan arepas
    • Mexican dishes
    • Pupusas from El Salvador
    • Many more Latin American dishes

Don’t miss this—one of the international artists bringing their music to Birmingham is Mr Pauer, a Latin Grammy-nominated artist, producer and DJ from Venezuela. He is also the official DJ for the Latin Grammys.

“We want people here in Birmingham to be able to experience Latin culture. We want them to be able to interact with the music and really immerse themselves. Everyone is welcome.”

Just a few years ago, there were only three or four places people could go to enjoy Latin culture. Now, Kristhian is bringing it to Birmingham through parties that people will be talking about for months to come.

“This feels so amazing. Sometimes, when I’m working on all of the details and getting ready for the celebrations, I feel like I may be in over my head and get a little scared, but when the event happens and people tell us how much it means to them, it is all worth it.”

Kristhian Treviño, Latinos Con Onda, Founder

The event is sure to be a special time, so mark your calendars, get your tickets and start the countdown.

“For those of us that are first generation Hispanic-American’s, something like this that merges both of our cultures together is so special. We can’t wait for next Saturday.”
