Organizers from Carnaval Miami announced that the iconic Calle Ocho Music Festival 2020 that was previously cancelled in March will return this year on October 4th as Calle Ocho Live (www.CalleOchoLive.com) #CalleOchoLive, a live stream and broadcast TV Hispanic Heritage Month-themed extravaganza that will feature major music artists, a variety show and many creative surprises.
“In these difficult times and especially during Hispanic Heritage Month, we need a magical Calle Ocho Live to uplift the Latino community,” said Jorge Fernandez, president of the Kiwanis of Little Havana/Carnaval Miami. “With Calle Ocho Live the Kiwanis will not only help the families we serve but also showcase our festival’s 43-year pivot into a live streamed and nationally broadcast show that is more diverse, inclusive, and youthful than ever before.”
In addition to featuring live and pre-recorded performances from top Latin music artists, celebrities and social media personalities, Calle Ocho Live will also highlight stories from the families that are served by the Kiwanis. Even though the online show is free, the event will feature a call to action for viewers to give a donation of $8 or more ahead of or during the festival to the Kiwanis at https://kiwanislittlehavanafoundation.org/donate-to-kiwanis-of-little-ha... Supporters and large philanthropists are urged to pledge whatever amount they can.
