El Día de los Tres Reyes Magos / Three Kings Day

Saturday, January 6, 2024
9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. | 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Join us for festive fun with the three kings and more at the 25th annual celebration! Make and decorate a crown, enjoy lively and traditional Mariachi youth performers and folklórico dance, delight in gifts (chocolate coins) handed out by the kings, and learn how to make real tortillas. Plus, share your talents during our “Open Mic” sessions. Recognized widely by many cultures around the world, and observed in many Spanish-speaking countries, the Feast of the Three Kings honors the Epiphany. The day is traditionally celebrated with family, food, gift-giving, and a Rosca de Reyes (sweet bread or King’s Cake).
