About Feria: Thousands of students and their Spanish-speaking parents are expected to visit the Tony Burger Center on Saturday, February 7th for the annual Feria Para Aprender. This event debuted in 2007 as the first citywide Spanish language-only education fair, drawing more than 3,500 in attendance.

It is the area’s largest one-day education effort with a dual objective to
