The goal of the Latino Heritage Month event is to create a festive and culturally relevant day of music, dance, and fun for the entire family, celebrating the beautiful traditional music of Mexico while highlighting the next generation that is carrying on the musical tradition. In addition to musical performances will be youth folklorico and Azteca dancers, arts and crafts, Loteria games, and, of course, delicious food – all the traditional elements of a true “tardeada,” or “afternoon party,” that contribute to L.A.’s rich Latino culture. Closing out the program will be a professional mariachi group.

The public is invited to this free event, which will also include a Resource Fair component to provide information on various county, community, and nonprofit resources, courtesy of Supervisor Solis’ office.
