Legados invites you to celebrate our heritage with three events. ¿Me cuentas un cuento? a Spanish-language storytime in the park for families to enjoy and discover stories from Latin American children's literature. Noches de cuento, an evening of stories and mulled wine for adults, with 4 narrators on stage.

And the classic Zocalito, the most colorful and warmest of flea markets, a place to gather and experience the effervescence of this beautiful Latin American tradition through crafts and typical dishes.

Come and celebrate with us!

¿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.

Free event

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
