About the event

The purpose of the event is to help and impart opportunities in the community, ideally reaching out to Latino families and youth. Highlight the importance of literacy (books, health, wealth) and promote awareness of college, career paths, and community resources. Meet our Award Winning role model authors as they share the importance of reading, activism & equal representation. 

The Latino Book & Family Festival was first celebrated in 1997, and 68 festivals have been held since then in eight markets around the USA including Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, San Bernardino, and San Diego.

The Latino Book & Family Festivals is a community program of Empowering Latino Futures, a 501c3 nonprofit headquartered in Fallbrook, CA. The organization believes that community success is limited by access to resources and so it provides this free setting to learn and be exposed to opportunities.
