Latin Sparks festival began with just a few of us looking for a place to dance freely. We wanted to create a latinl festival centered around dance. Apparently, thousands of people in Ottawa felt the same way. It started with one block, one speaker, and a couple dozen dance-loving friends. The word spread, the fun was contagious! Every year our family continues to grow. Latin Sparks festival is now one of the most anticipated summer festivals in Ottawa, attended by thousands.

Our  3 core principles we refuse to comprise:


We bring together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities (our events are wheelchair accessible). Latin Sparks is for anybody and everybody!
