El Grupo Latino de Piedmont

Bienvenidos        Bem Vindo

Welcome to the online space for Latinx-identifying members of the Piedmont, CA community.  We are an affinity group formed to provide connection, identity, fellowship, visibility and support for Latinx Piedmonters.  If you'd like to get connected with us, please email grupolatinodepiedmont@gmail.com

 Happy Hour - Tuesday, Feb 9 from 5:30 - 7:30 @ Doña

Celebrate the winter season with your Piedmont Latinx community.  We will meet upstairs at Doña on Piedmont Ave from 7:30 - 7:30 for casual drinks and socializing.  Grab a drink downstairs and we'll have some snacks to share.  If you're in the mood, stay for tacos and make a night of it! 

 Malbec & Tapas Party - Winter 2023

In January, our resident Piedmont Malbec expert Karna will lead a tasting in her home complete with empanadas and other tasty Argentine snacks.  A contribution of $30 per person will cover the cost of food. If you're interested, email shannon.fierro@gmail.com

Second Annual Potluck!!

Plans are in the works for our second annual Grupo Latino Potluck in Piedmont Park.  Details to come soon!

Our Inaugural Event!

On Sunday, March 27, 2022 The Grupo Latino de Piedmont launched with over 75 community members joining in Piedmont Park for a potluck and socializing.  There were foods from Spain to the Caribbean to all corners of Latin America.  We ate, we spoke Spanglish, we swayed to the music and we laughed.  See you at the next one.

Dia de los Muertos Ofrenda

In late October 2022, members of the Piedmont community led by Piedmont resident and Havens parent Raquel Navarro built a beautiful ofrenda to honor the departed.  The display included information about the holiday and symbolism as well as a craft project for students to create their own papel picado.

What's Next?

This group is as strong as we make it.  Do you have an idea for an event, activity or advocacy?  Please reach out.  Let's work together to build the strength, visibility and fellowship within our Piedmont Latinx Community!

Ideas for the spring include:
