Elida Reyna announced the performance lineup today for her inaugural Elida Fest scheduled for July 30, 2022, in her hometown of Mercedes, Texas. Siggno, Elida Y Avante, David Lee Garza Y Los Musicales, Los TexManiacs, and Los Morales are scheduled to perform at the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show event Fairgrounds.
Elida Fest 2022 will launch a music scholarship program to help students acquire instruments and an academic scholarship to help pay for their educational costs including tuition, books, and fees.
“The reason I want to do it is because I want to give back to my community, not just Mercedes, but the RGV, and really give back to the music industry,” Reyna told Tejano Nation in a recent interview. “Our goal is to get $10,000 scholarship money so that we can give back to the young generation. And really what my goal is to do is to buy instruments for kids who want to continue and who want to pursue a career in the music industry.”
Elida Fest tickets are on sale beginning Monday, June 20, 2022, at eventmania.com. Children aged 12 and under are admitted free.
The city of Mercedes proclaimed November 1, 2005, as “Elida Reyna Day.” “La Reina del Valle Magico” (The Queen of the Magic Valley) is undeniably the leading female force in the Tejano industry. The two-time Latin GRAMMY winner was named Female Vocalist of the Year at the Tejano Music Awards in 2000 and every year from 2007 to 2015. She has earned 38 TMA wins, the most of any female artist and second only to late Tejano icon Jimmy Gonzalez.
