The Nochevieja Festival

¡Vamos a bailar! We’re super excited about this one! Our good friend Maiz Vargas came through Highlight’s Bright Idea Project with a truly brilliant idea—a mini-festival on New Year’s Eve that celebrates the rich art and culture of Latin American’s from across Vermont! Come experience an extraordinary evening with Mal Maïz and Friends; discover the beautiful Afro-Colombian dances and folkloric drums by Kumbia Chuanas; salsa dance with local legends Dsantos; get lost in the psycho-tropical beats by GuaGua; munch on traditional food and beverages; and don’t miss a very special headline performance by Mal Maiz. Stay tuned for a detailed schedule and even more performance announcements!

–> This Bright Ideas Project event was crowdsourced from Vermonters, and generously powered by VSECU.

–> This Yappy Hour event, presented by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, the vodka for dog people, features a custom menu of specialty cocktails that raises funds for the Humane Society of Chittenden County.
