Hola Carolina will postpone Fiesta Hendersonville to fall 2022. The event was scheduled for Saturday, October 2. The event is postponed due to the increase in the number of people, including children, with COVID in the region.
“Our top priority must always be public safety. I do not want to put our community at risk by putting them in a situation that could possibly affect their health and therefore their friends and family,” said Hola Carolina Executive Director, Adriana Chavela. “We look forward to relaunching the festival next year when we can all safely gather again.”
In North Carolina, 5,300 new cases were reported Tuesday. There are more than 3,600 people in the hospital. The statewide daily positive rate is 14.6 percent.
Henderson County is reporting a testing positivity rate of more than 20% with increased hospitalizations and greater demand for ICU beds. In Rutherford County, the positivity rate for the past 14 days is 21.3 percent. McDowell County’s 14-day positivity rate is 30.7 percent.
“The Latino community has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and we are most worried about the younger, unvaccinated crowd,” Chavela added. “Our agricultural community relies heavily on immigrant labor to meet seasonal needs and we are committed to protecting our farmworkers.”
FIESTA Hendersonville celebrates the best of Latin America. Fairgoers journey through over 20 represented countries and experience their people, music, art, food and culture.
