SALSA MUSIC means a mixture of music born in various regions, like a sauce, and SALSA DANCE is said to have been born as a salty, stimulating dance to match this music.
Ueno Park is an exciting festival that brings together people and cultures from around the world, mainly from the Caribbean and Latin America, with the theme of salsa music, salsa dancing, and salsa food.
There are about 30 food tents and food trucks selling tacos, Cuban sandwiches, choripan, jerk chicken, empanadas, paella, and more.
There are about 10 colorful, cute, and fashionable miscellaneous goods stores from Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, and other countries that you don't often get the chance to purchase.
It's the perfect season to drink Caribbean and Latin American craft beers and tropical cocktails like mojitos and caipirinhas outdoors.
On the special stage, you can enjoy lively Latin music, salsa dancing, capoeira experiences for children, and dance performances.
We also plan to offer salsa dance lessons from instructors who are active in various locations.
Spread the national flag and promote international exchange.
Ueno is a cultural center surrounded by museums and art galleries, and has excellent access to JR, Tokyo Metro, Keisei, and Shinkansen trains.
The venue is Fountain Plaza, just a stone's throw from Ueno Station's park exit.
It's going to be a salsa (like a sauce made by mixing ingredients) theme park, and let's all have fun in a bueno mood in Ueno!
