Due to the threat of inclement weather, Salsa Fest at Turner Field has been postponed. The  celebration of Hispanic culture with local salsa groups, DJs, bands and dance demonstrations is now set for March 28.

The stage area will feature live local salsa bands MaCuba and Serenata, and DJs playing throughout the afternoon. Salsa groups from around the Atlanta area will also be present, to give short lessons and exhibition dances to show off their talent. There will be a dance floor set in front of the stage for professionals, salsa performances and for the general crowd.

Hours for the festival are noon to  7 p.m. and tickets are $10 for regular admission, $8 for college students with valid ID, and a special ticket price of $15 for admission plus one ticket voucher to a regular season Braves game, Sunday through Thursday.
