Atlanta Con Sabor Latino

Atlanta with Latin Flavor

From food to art and the music that moves us, Atlanta is better with a little Latin flavor. 

Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau has partnered with Telemundo Atlanta to produce Atlanta con Sabor Latino (Atlanta with Latin Flavor), a creative, bilingual lifestyle series showcasing Latin culture and cuisine through intertwined stories from Latinos who call Atlanta home.

The vibrant Hispanic population represents 13% of the population in Atlanta, and this six-part documentary celebrates their stories, their history and the impact they have on the culture of Atlanta.

In the spring of 2023, an all-Latino production crew from all over Latin America headed out into the streets of Atlanta to meet some of the most iconic Latinos who are making an impact on the city by bringing their colors and culture to what they do. From chefs to artists, dancers and business leaders, each one shared his or her inspiring stories and explained how Atlanta has played a role in their stories.
