Centered around gathering during the month of December to recognize, strengthen, and bring community together, the festival of las Posadas spans across various days starting in December. Posadas are a traditional festival in a variety of Latin American countries, with a variety of differences and influences from each culture. While the root of las Posadas festivals lies within a religious Catholic context, it has grown into a deeply enshrined cultural event that extends beyond its religious beginnings. Throughout the period of Las Posadas, communities share their accomplishments with other members of their culture over a shared space. Typical, cultural food is also part of the festival, to which we will provide a taste of culture by partnering with a Hispanic owned business from the Tuscaloosa area. Our event would recreate a Posada festival within the UA community. We plan on having a traditional dance group present a Folklorico dance performance, and Latino DJs the rest of the night which will be playing a variety of genres spanning from different Latin American countries. This event is meant to bring Latino culture and presence to the UA campus.
