Sweet 15: El Clasificado Sponsors Quinceañera Expo

The traditional Quinceañera celebration, which celebrates young Latina’s 15th birthday, is big business when one considers the number of Hispanic females who reach the milestone each year. It is not uncommon for celebrations to top the $10,000 mark, with parents hosting lavish events, complete with DJs, catered menus, a special cake, and of course a quinceañera gown for the quinceañera.

For the second year in a row, the event was hosted by LA’s El Clasificado newspaper, owner of Quinceanera.com, and was held at the Industry Hills Expo Center.

The event included over 40 vendors of quinceañera celebration supplies, including cakes, gowns and assorted decorations. It also included an essay contest that recognized 5 inner city students for their essays, academic achievement and academic ambition.
