On Saturday, April 25, 2020, the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) will host its second NHCC Children’s Bilingual Book Festival. The festival celebrates K-6 children’s books written in Spanish and English and Native languages and English. 

The first year the festival drew over 450 people and we expect it to grow each year. 2019 vendors gave high marks to festival coordinators and were very satisfied with their book sales.

The focus on Spanish-English and Native Language-English books and authors (K-6) makes this festival particularly meaningful and vibrant, reflecting the identities of bilingual children, families and communities. We want to encourage children to see themselves in contemporary children’s literature as well as introduce a bilingual body of work to a wider audience. 



The National Hispanic Cultural Center is devoted to the preservation, promotion and advancement of Hispanic culture, arts and humanities.  We present over 700 events per year with over 270,000 visitors annually. Our 20 acre campus includes a museum, performing arts center, historic history and literary arts building, and an education center.  We host several large festivals each year including Globalquerque and the Bosque Chile Festival.
