HispanoFest is compiled of local business owners, Village of Melrose Park employees,
community volunteers, and the continued support of the Mayor of Melrose Park,
HispanoFest promotes the advancement to the Hispanic Community through educational and leadership developement
HispanoFest is possible because of the ongoing fundraising of our major sponsors, our sales of booths and the vendor commitment. We have accomplished our goals by fundraising through the residents and the business owners in the community.
This major event allows the committee to award scholarships to local Hispanic students that live in the surrounding suburbs and are currently attending college, university, or a trade school.
Over the past 20 years HispanoFest has awarded 140 scholarships.
HispanoFest is also a non-profit 503(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and also classified as a public charity under section(a)(1) and 170(b)(a)(A)(vi).
They're helping us make this event possible.
