La Fiesta del Pueblo 2019: Accessibility Information

The La Fiesta del Pueblo event will take place on September 22, from 12 to 6 p.m. in City Plaza and along Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.

La Fiesta del Pueblo is free and open to the public, with all of the day’s events taking place on Fayetteville Street as well as on the intersecting streets.

A designated accessible viewing area will be available in front of both stages for people who use mobility devices and their companions to help ensure that you can see what’s happening on stage. This area is intended for visitors who use wheelchairs, scooters or other mobility devices and their companions, as well as guests who have a disability that substantially limits their ability to stand and their companions. Space is limited and is available on a first-come, first served basis.

For people who are blind or have low vision, you may request to be paired up with a sighted guide who will help you navigate La Fiesta del Pueblo. While our preference is for you to reserve in advance, some sighted guides are available during the festival at the booth at the intersection of Davie Street and Fayetteville Street. Service animals are welcome at La Fiesta del Pueblo.

For more information, visit La Fiesta del Pueblo’s website  or call 919-835-1525 ext. 104.
