The Peruvian Festival is back in Davis County for its fifth year, getting ready for two days of food, music and fun on July 20 from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and July 21 from noon to 9:30 p.m. at Centerville’s Founder’s Park. Admission is free, and everyone is encouraged to come sample everything the country has to offer.
“It’s not just a Peruvian festival, it’s a community festival,” said event director Francisco Calderon. “We want to show we are part of the community.”
More than 100 performers will take to the stage over the two days of the festival, offering a mix of music and dancing meant to appeal to as wide a range of people as possible. Modern musical groups such as Infusion and The Steve Walker Band will alternate with those playing traditional music from several South American cultures. Another featured style will be reggaeton, which blends reggae and Latin American-style music. If any of it gets your feet moving, dancing is always allowed.
