Musicians and entertainers who will perform at the Latin Fusion Fest include Héctor Rosado and his 12-Piece Salsa Band, Gustavo Sensacion and his Bachata 9-Piece Band, Michele Galvis’ Tribute to Selena, and El Chaviviri, DJ Queue, DJ Jolave, DJ Daddy and DJ Ruby, and Zumba Dance with Dora and Fernanda.

Sherman Theater President and CEO Rich Berkowitz is excited to bring this event to the Poconos. “We are excited to bring the Latin Fusion Fest to downtown Stroudsburg. Prior to Covid, we had a Latin Quarter as part of Stroudfest and there was so much interest in that, we dedicated an entire event to the Latin and Caribbean cultures,” said Berkowitz. “We appreciate the support of DJ Ruby and the sponsors and we are happy to be able to make it happen for everyone.”
