On July 26th, 1953 a group of Cuban revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro attacked the Moncada Army Barracks again the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Although this attack was defeated militarily, taking the lives of dozens of rebel fighters and imprisoning many others, including Fidel Castro, it is seen as the beginning of the Cuban revolution. It is the July 26th Movement, named after this initial defeat, that led the Cuban revolution to victory under the leadership of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and their compañeros.
 
Please join us in the beautiful Trout Lake Park to commemorate the July 26th movement with an evening of dynamic speakers, poets, musicians and good food!
