We are preparing for a month of October full of celebrations that will take us on a journey to Latin America and discover the creative power of this community.
Legados welcomes our party with three events to celebrate together our heritages: ¿Me cuentas un cuento? a story time in Spanish in the park, to enjoy with the family and discover new stories of Latin American youth literature, Noches de cuento, an evening for adults, stories, mulled wine and 4 storytellers on stage and the classic Zocalito, the most colorful and warm Latin market, a space to gather and live through crafts and typical dishes the excitement of this beautiful Latin American tradition.
¿Me cuentas un cuento?
Legados brings its Library to the street with a traveling Library that will visit the Companion Park of Saint-Laurent to offer you a great opportunity to meet with our language, Spanish, as well as indigenous languages, and rediscover the richness of Latin American literature, for both young and old.
A selection of Spanish-American literature will give you a taste for reading and allow you to explore the narrative diversity of Latin America through books.
All this will be accompanied by a literary and musical show based on the visit of different tales representative of certain countries to salute the taste of this oral tradition, but also to offer you a beautiful moment in family with a sensitive and different show, interpreted by our guest artist Cristina Jiménez.
We are waiting for you on October 15 from 2 to 3 pm in the Companion Park of Saint-Laurent with the whole family.
Noches de cuento
Come on, take time to dream and come to listen to Latin American stories.
Noches de cuento, nights to travel, to tell us in Spanish and why not, in other languages, to weave history together. Legados opens its space to bring you the memories from there from a present in transformation from here. Noches de cuento is an evening for an adult audience where silence and words meet to celebrate together our heritage month.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday, October 21 at 7 pm in our local. Admission 15$. Buy your tickets here
You can come and enjoy a Latin American market, unique in Montreal, with eight craft stalls, from textiles to cosmetics and typical dishes. On Sunday, October 30, from 10 am to 6 pm, in our local at 4510 Cartier Street, suite 202, we will welcome you with the originality of Latin American handicrafts, from Mexico to Argentina.
