CARNAVAL DEL SOL 2022
July 10, 2022 – Vancouver’s Latin Festival Carnaval Del Sol was a HUGE SUCCESS! This year it was located at Jonathan Rogers Park, just a few blocks away from Olympic Village, and Cambie and West Broadway.
Carnaval Del Sol is a 3-DAY party! Sunday was the last day of the event, and it opened to a long line of hungry festival goers. Admission was FREE until 1PM!
There were quite a few vendors, and sponsored booths. Some cuisines you will find at Carnaval Del Sol — Colombian, Chilean, Mexican, Brazilian, Portuguese and more!
There were multiple stages for performances like traditional dance and music. There was even Nintendo with Mario Strikers demo and a stage for cooking demonstrations.
Some vendors also had unique Latin SNACKS, and ice cream! So much food, such a good time!
A big PLUS for this event was the water station to refill water bottles.
Also the limited time FREE ADMISSION is a BIG plus so you can spend more money on the vendors and FOOD. Free Admission was from opening til 1pm.
Overall a great event, packed with entertainment and food for the whole family. The park location is nice with grass so can sit and picnic.

Things this festival should improve on
- More shade! The dining area was exposed and had no tent for shade. It was very hot!
- Lineups for vendors are often confusing
- Entrance to the GATED event was confusing, with no arrows pointing to where the entrance was. Expect to walk around the park to find the entrance!
- No coffee vendor. Latin cuisine is known for coffee!
- No pupusa vendor.
