Other Events

Fuerza Latina is a host of a wide range of events throughout the year celebrating different aspects of Latin Culture with the Vaughan community.

Award Ceremony

For more than 15 years we have been recognizing residents for their contributions to our community in Vaughan. Taking place during the yearly fundraising gala, the award ceremony is a special moment dedicated to celebrate leaders that have reached great achievements or made impacts in their community. Our wish is to highlight the efforts of these individuals with pride and hope as they continue to work toward a better world. In the past recipients have come from different walks of life, with outstanding stories, excelling in a multitude of fields, including professional sports, arts and science research, community work, students and more.

The three awards we give are

  • Orgullo Latino Award;
  • Community Leader Award; and
  • Fuerza Latina Youth Achievement Award

Dia De Los Reyes Magos (Kids’ Fiesta)

Día de Los Reyes (known elsewhere as Epiphany) is celebrated on January 6 to honor the Three Wise Men. This day closes the Christmas festivities, and in many Latin American countries and Spain, the Three Kings bring gifts for children (as opposed to Santa Claus). In some regions, families gather during Christmas and Epiphany to exchange gifts, whereas in other places of the Spanish speaking world, it is on either or one of these days.

Dominican Republic 175th Independence Day

The Dominican Republic’s Carnival is celebrated every year during the entire month of February, culminating with the largest celebration on Independence Day, February 27. We decided to join this celebration for the 175th anniversary of their independence.

Fuerza Latina Cultural Days

As part of the Hispanic & Latino Heritage Month celebration, we partner with the City of Vaughan to showcase Latin American art and culture at City Hall. We want to thank everyone who made this event possible. Viva Latino America!

Art Gallery of Ontario Field Trip

What a better way to keep our minds learning than through art. We took local families to the AGO to explore and learn about art and culture from around the globe.

Dominican Republic School Visit

We recently visited a school located in an impoverished area of Domincan Republic as part of our effort to build bridges between Fuerza Latina and non-profit organizations in Latin America. We hope that in the near future, with the help of our community in Vaughan, we can work with youth at risk in South and Central America.
