Celebrating its 35th year of existence, Festival Betances is the oldest Latino community arts festival in New England. Produced through a collaboration between the dynamic community building agency Inquilinos Boricuas en Accion (IBA), our Casa de la Cultura/Center for Latino Arts and the residents of Villa Victoria, this festival celebrates Puerto Rican and Latino arts and culture, the founding fathers of Villa Victoria and the memory of Puerto Rican patriot Dr. Ramón Emeterio Betances.

Featuring an array of activities including artistic performances, youth and family events, traditional foods, handcrafts and vendors, Festival Betances has become an icon of Latino culture in the city of Boston and the region. Attracting an average of 10,000 people per year, this community festival is a wonderful opportunity for Latinos to celebrate their heritage and for non-Latinos to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Puerto Rican and Latino culture.
