Dias Latinos is the most exciting Latin and Caribbean festival in the Netherlands for all the family. This free street festival will immerse you in such authentic Latin vibes that you may forget that you’re in Amersfoort.
The event is centred around music, which will transport you to the southern hemisphere in an instant! This is complemented with markets selling Latin American and Caribbean products as well as food trucks and stalls offering to-die-for food. Bring your kids, because there will be exciting Latin music lessons for children, including Latin drumming.

Plan your visit to Dias Latinos
Prepare for bustling streets and packed city squares during Dias Latinos. Some areas are simply not accessible by bicycle, so plan your route to the festival carefully. If you do plan on cycling, the festival organisers recommend parking your bicycles at the three main free designated bicycle parks: Amicitia, St. Jorisplein and Kamperbinnenpoort.
