Hispanic Culture

Celebrate the Culture and Contributions of Hispanic Americans

Hispanic culture has varied yet equally rich traditions when it comes to food, music, art and holidays, and there’s no better place in St. Louis to experience them than Cherokee Street.

Cherokee Street boasts the largest concentration of Hispanic-owned and -operated bakeries, restaurants, groceries and shops in the Gateway City, and their presence maintains the exuberance of the area. Fill up on tacos, tortas, conchas, paletas and more, and don’t miss the epic Cinco de Mayo celebration if you’re in town at the time.

Even if you only spend an hour or two on Cherokee Street, the experience will make a lasting impact.

During your trip to St. Louis, you can also connect with Hispanic culture through Hispanic Festival, Inc., which aims to increase awareness of the spectrum of cultural contributions made by regional Hispanic musicians, dancers, artisans, makers, chefs and entrepreneurs. The organization’s efforts also serve to preserve vibrant Hispanic traditions and educate the next generation.

Throughout the year, Hispanic Festival, Inc. hosts different events featuring live entertainment, tradition food and drinks, family-friendly activities and more. ¡Vamos de fiesta!
