The setting for this year's festival was also a largely Hispanic setting for Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony-winning musical "In the Heights."

This year’s festival theme is “Juntos Somos Más,” or “Together We Are More,” which emphasizes the Hispanic cultural contributions while focusing on engagement in the 2020 election.

Tickets to the festival are free with registration. A limited number tickets will also be available the day of both events.
