Conexion Comunidad will host its annual Fiesta at the Van Buer Plaza in downtown DeKalb from 2 to 9 p.m. Saturday. This celebration, sponsored by NB&T, happens during Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the different cultures in the Hispanic and Latino community.

For the first time, food will be available at the event. Tinez Tacos, Gallegos Snow Cones and Chamoy Apples will offer a taste of Mexico for everyone. There will be a 50/50 cash raffle and raffles for prizes. A number of vendors and nonprofits will offer their own activities, such as an hourly book raffle by the DeKalb Public Library. There will be games and a bounce house for children. Conexion’s Mexican ballet dancers, Rayitos del Sol, will perform.

Conexion Comunidad is a nonprofit cultural center that uses the arts to positively influence lives and support the community in the areas of education, leadership development, health, and community resources. It is located at 637 N. 11th St. in DeKalb.
