Harrah’s Resort | Latin Food and Wine Festival

Southern California Harrah’s Resort is hosting their 2nd annual Latin Food and Wine Festival with over 10 restaurants and 34 wineries on May 2 from 2pm-6pm to celebrate the rich history of International wine and cuisine. The day will be filled with tapas and wine tasting and live entertainment that includes Spanish Guitar with Flamenco Dancers, Cumbia, Latin Pop, Mariachi and Latin Jazz!

California’s love of Latin wine dates back to the 18th century when missionaries planted the first vineyards.  Join Harrah’s for a journey through wines of the region to celebrate the history through wine tasting and Southern California inspired cuisine.
