The Latin Jazz & Salsa Festival”, was born in 2007. For the past seven years it has been held at the prestigious Dogwood Dell Amphitheater at Byrd Park in Richmond Virginia. With the Festivals growing popularity by uniting all cultures under “The Latin Jazz & Salsa” Banner. We applied for a 501-C non-profit status and received our Tax ID. We became something more than just a musical, cultural event. With the help of “The City of  Richmond, The Festival of The Arts Program & Office of Multicultural Affairs”, the festival has become more than a yearly event, but also a venue for community outreach and community services. This event like the music it represents, crosses all cultural lines. It has become a hub of teaching learning and exchanging of ideas. An opportunity to let the community know the services and support available to them.  
 This event has also become a meeting place where the community expects not only great entertainment but information and access to services needed thru-out the area. It targets and interacts with families and community members of all ages. Where a small family owned business owner, can afford to promote their shops and business and be proud they serve the community where they live in.
