Historical Note

 

 

            The New Orleans Hispanic Heritage Foundation, a non-profit organization which seeks to promote Hispanic heritage in the city, initiated the first Carnaval in 1989 and continues to operate the yearly event.  The festival has grown from a single event to a week-long series of sporting contests that culminate in a three-day festival of continu­ous live performances by Hispanic entertainers and includes food and crafts booths.  The festival is usually held in the downtown area of the city on Canal Street.  Proceeds from the festival are used for social services programs benefiting the Hispanic community.
