Have you ever gone to the Dominican Republic for a Caribbean getaway? Do you dream of its tropical lands filled with beautifully sun-kissed tans? Missing the sounds of live Dominican music such as Merengue, Bachata, or Merengue Tipico? Or are you simply just a fan of Dominican culture? If so, then Dominican Heritage Night is just what you’re looking for!
The Dominican American National Foundation’s mission is to permanently infuse Latino culture into the fabric of American society through the celebration of Dominican cultural heritage, achievement, and excellence on a national platform in collaboration with professional sports teams. Therefore, the DANF proudly presents “Dominican Heritage Night”, a one-of-a-kind cultural exchange that brings a culturally driven Hispanic experience to professional sporting arenas & stadiums across the US. Our trademarked “Dominican Heritage Night” concept combines Latin music, celebrity, fire & passion with a splash of American sports enthusiasm to create an authentic sporting experience like none other seen before in the NBA, MLB, NFL, and the NHL.


It is a completely unique experience from the live sounds of Merengue Tipico that everyone in attendance can dance to throughout the course of every event down to the incorporation of the world famous “Las Fieras del Carnaval Vegano” costume characters into the in-game entertainment photo opportunities. The DANF also takes out time during every DHN event to highlight and honor a local community individual or organization doing great work to advance the culture with a DANF “Blue Flame of Achievement” award presentation at halftime or during pregame on-field ceremonies.



The DANF acts a one-stop shop resource for brands and sports teams alike to create a genuinely Latino experience that courts a vast captively engaged audience.Featuring a diversely Hispanic following of all ages and genders, Dominican Heritage Night is an inclusive environment that encourages the participation of all latinos in the celebration of cultural heritage, achievement, and excellence in one night. Dominican Heritage Night celebrates Latino culture at its finest by highlighting its music, artistry, and societal contributions throughout the course of the entire night. Most of these events consist of live musical performances by local market bands,  Hispanic Americans singing the National Anthem before each game, while some of the hottest artists perform during the halftime and post game shows.
