The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is hosting its annual celebration of Latin American culture on Saturday, November 5.

“We are grateful to welcome our Hispanic members and other friends in the community to join with us in celebrating the beautiful culture we share as neighbors,” said Federico M. Kähnlein, Area Seventy. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to gather once again in person at the Conference Center. We encourage all who live along the Wasatch Front to join us on a special and unforgettable night as we rejoice together in the gospel.”

The 2022 theme for ‘Luz de las Naciones’ is ‘Juntos es Mejor’ (Better Together). More than 500 musical artists will fill the stage with songs and 11 dance performances from several Latin American countries including the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico, and Cuba. Performers represent several countries including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Peru.
