For more than 13 years, El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center, has sought to improve lives and inspire other communities with its model.
Through El Sol Fest, its signature festival, the nonprofit celebrates cultural diversity in Jupiter and Palm Beach County.
El Sol Fest is set for November 3 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Masonic Lodge, 600 S Loxahatchee Drive, Jupiter, FL 33458. The festival features artists, live music, cultural dance performances, activities for children and authentic Latin food. Admission is free and open to the public.
Organizers recruited local food vendors offering Mexican tacos, El Salvadorian pastries, Honduran baleadas, Peruvian ceviche and more.
Scheduled performances include bossa nova guitar, Guatemalan marimba, a folkloric dance group, the Jupiter Elementary School Choir and a mariachi band.
El Sol Fest features a petting zoo, pony rides, crafts and games. The large children’s area will also have a miniature train, visits from cartoon characters, a cake walk and face paintings.
El Sol’s signature festival began as a celebration of art created by its day laborers. Since then, it has grown to attract a diverse collection of South Florida painters, photographers and artisans.
Through its labor program, the center helps individuals provide for themselves and their families. It also offers adult education, health referrals and nutrition assistance, among other social services. Proceeds from the festival benefit the center’s programs.
El Sol Fest requires months of planning, a dedicated team of volunteers and the support of generous sponsors.
