Cuban Consulate participates in Toronto Latin Fair.

On Sunday, July 3, the Consulate of Cuba along with other Latin American consulates accredited in Toronto (Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Mexico) exhibited part of their roots at the Latin Fair in Toronto to highlight the Hispanic heritage and cultural diversity in Canada.


The space was propitious for those present to enjoy a little piece of Cuba with the joy that characterizes Cubans and where there was no lack of good Cuban music, dominoes and cuatro esquinas. The youngest children were able to play kites and tasted the delicious flavor of Cuban food.


In addition, salsa classes were given to those present by Cuban professor José Ángel Carret, which ended in a dance competition, and Cuba was promoted as a safe tourist destination.


The Juan Gualberto Gómez Association of Cubans together with some members of solidarity and friends of Cuba accompanied and supported at all times the representation of the Consulate at the Fair. Other Caribbean consulates and the dean of the consular corps, Ann-Marie P. Layne, also attended the event as guests at the Cuban stand.


For the first time Cuba participated and made itself felt strongly at the Toronto Latin Fair, infecting with its joy many of those present who joined in the dancing and the initiatives of the significant number of Cubans united with their flag, many of whom wrote beautiful messages to our island. Oscar Vigil, executive director of the Hispanic Canadian Heritage Council (HCHC) and coordinator of the Fair, highlighted the extraordinary work and projection of the Cuban representation.
