The all-new El Grito event is the successor to Centro Cultural’s “El Grito de la Independencia Festival”, which previously took place in Cornelius at Centro Cultural’s main campus. The decision to move the event to Hillsboro’s Shute Park will allow the El Grito event to grow and engage new community members in appreciation of cultural equity and heritage in Washington County.
