About Us

Founded

The Spanish Association of North Florida was founded in November of 2005 with the purpose of being able to represent Spain in another country.  It first became active September 30, 2006 with it’s inaugural party.

What We’re About

We are a non-profit organization based in Jacksonville, Florida dedicated to uniting all the Spaniards that live in the surrounding areas in an attempt to continue our heritage and traditions while living abroad.

We participate in various events throughout the year including the World of Nations Celebration representing Spain for three years now at Metropolitan Park. Please see our Events page for more information.

As well as cultural and social events, one of our goals is to help out our community. Some of the organizations we wish to help, not just monetarily, but through volunteer time, are Shriner’s hospital, Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital and the Big Brother Big Sister Program of North Florida. We also have many other projects that are currently under discussion.

Another priority of ours is to educate others in our community about our culture. With so many Spanish -speaking countries it can be difficult for those who are not from one to differentiate them. We would like to educate on what is different about Spain, which is a European country and has no indigenous people in its background.
