Edwin & Karen Prudencio, Founders of The Pocono Latin Fest, moved to the Poconos in 2003 and share a love for the Latin American Culture. In 2014, when their first born, Marielle was 7 years old, Edwin decided it was time that she and all the children in The Poconos got to experience the best of our Cultura Latina.
The Pocono Latin Fest was born August 7th 2014 as a way to celebrate, with our Pocono Community, the beauty and diversity within our Latino Culture.
