A project of Hermanos Fraternos de loiza Aldea in partnership with The Caribbean Cultural Center (CCCADI) and El Barrio-Taino Tower, the festival will follow the legendary tradition of dedicating each day to celebrating the contributions of men, women and children – highlighting and honoring outstanding leaders through the newly formed Loiza Award committee.
