El Grito - Festival Comunitario
Centro Cultural de Washington County and the City of Hillsboro proudly announced a new partnership to produce the all-new "El Grito” Community Celebration at Hillsboro’s Shute Park. The second annual El Grito Festival Comunitario will be hosted on September 15, 2018. The festival will include family activities, regional Latin food options, a concert, and a traditional "Grito" Ceremony. Thousands are expected to participate in the event, which kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month.

The all-new El Grito event is the successor to Centro Cultural’s “El Grito de la Independencia Festival", which previously took place in Cornelius at Centro Cultural’s main campus. The decision to move the event to Hillsboro’s Shute Park will allow the El Grito event to grow and engage new community members in appreciation of cultural equity and heritage in Washington County.
