Es un festival en donde los presentes siempre disfrutan de grupos folklóricos, grupos musicales, puestos de comida auténtica de varios países hispanos, artesanías, actividades para los niños, otras atracciones para toda la familia y el baile nocturno.

Desde el 1998, nuestra organización igualmente ha estado auspiciando anualmente el "Certamen de Señorita Latina ACHA" durante el festival hispano donde becas son otorgadas a las ganadoras. Las candidatas deben ser estudiantes de escuelas secundarias o universitarias que muestren un interés al idioma español y a la cultura hispana.
