Fall Fiesta at Vol State on Saturday, October 18

Volunteer State Community College will celebrate Hispanic culture on Saturday, October 18 with the Fall Fiesta at Vol State. The annual event is in its eighth year. Everyone is invited. A talent contest is new this year, bringing together musicians, singers, and artists to perform and compete for prizes. Food is always a big part of the Fiesta. The food contest provides a venue for people to showcase their favorite dishes from the many different countries that make up what we call Hispanic culture.
“After the judging in the food contest, the public can sample the food. That’s always a favorite of mine. We’ve had dishes from Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala, and Argentina, just to name a few countries represented over the years,” said Eric Melcher, Vol State coordinator of communications. “This is a family event, held outside on the campus grounds. It includes a soccer tournament, live music, a dance group, art activities for the kids and plenty of fun games for the little ones.”
In addition to the food cook-off contest at 11 a.m., there will be a free Mexican lunch and drinks starting at noon. The Fall Fiesta at Vol State will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will happen, rain or shine, on the Volunteer State Community College campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. The rain location is the Pickel Field House.  The Fall Fiesta is free and open to everyone. Families are encouraged to bring a blanket and chairs and spend the day. Anyone can enter the food contest or the talent contest. For more information in English call 615-230-3570 or Spanish at 615-230-4846.
