Posted on Nov 8, 2017 By Rikki Rincon

For many years, Dallas has attracted the very best in Latino entertainment, from national concert tours and specialty showcases to local festivals, and this month is no exception. Get ready to immerse yourself in Dallas' Latino culture this November!

1. Latino Mix Live!

When so many of today's Top 40 music artists are Latino, it calls for a celebration. Latino Mix Live! is just that as it brings together major talent like Daddy Yankee, Ozuna, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Becky G, Plan B, Lowell and Randy and Dallas' very own Play N' Skillz. Bring the whole family out for the Latino Mix Live!concert on Sunday, Nov. 12 at the American Airlines Center. The show begins at 6 p.m. but doors open at 4:30 p.m. 

 

2. Cine de Oro

Many years ago, Dallas had movie theaters that catered to the Spanish speaking community. The Latino Cultural Center is bringing that back as it presents "Cine de Oro" every Third Thursday of each month, beginning Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. The public is invited to enjoy the movie "Julieta" (with English subtitles) which  is about a chance encounter that causes a woman (Emma Suárez) to reflect on the tragic circumstances surrounding the disappearance of her daughter. Admission is free, but you must be at least 18 years old to attend.

 

3. Salsa, Merengue and more

Grab your best dancing shoes and head to Gloria's Latin Cuisine for live Salsa every weekend. The Dallas-based tropical band, Havana NRG! has been performing at Gloria's for 15 years and continue to entertain locals and visitors of the city. Recently voted the Top 5 Salsa destinations in the United States, we are very proud to have this movement in Dallas! Gloria's is open for dancing every Friday and Saturday evening from 11 p.m.-2 a.m.
