Electrifying! Sensational! Mesmerizing! Malaysia Meets Latin America and the Caribbean!

The 14h Latin American Festival (LAF2023) returned with new energy to Bukit Bintang on Sunday, 11 June 2023.  Commonskl at bbpark once again play host for the twelfth consecutive year celebrating the diversity of culture, tastes and rhythms of Latin America and the Caribbean, bringing Malaysia and Latin America closer together, strengthening our friendship and cultural exchange, and making Bukit Bintang Central even livelier. Through this festival, we are also sharing the colourful diversity of our rich Malaysian culture and heritage with the international communities as well as tourists as Bukit Bintang has always been the popular tourist hotspot in Kuala Lumpur. 

Awesome! Fascinating, Energetic, spicing up Bukit Bintang and Kuala Lumpur City once again with its magical display of vibrant colours and pulsating vibes of Latin American music and rhythms, a celebration of life, arts, food, music, dance, culture and heritage whilst at the same time spreading the spiirit of cheer and kindness as proceeds from this festival this year will be donated to Rumah Amal Cheshire/Selangor Cheshire Home to finance their Food Cabin Café project, which aims to train young people with disabilities for future employment in the hospitality industry.

A wonderful opportunity for all to experience the rich culture, handmade arts & crafts, and traditional music & dance, as well as have the delicious taste and flavours of each of these vibrant Latin America and Caribbean Countries from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
