Lunada Familiar

May 5, 2018 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us Saturday, May 5 and help us celebrate Cinco de Mayo at a multicultural and family-friendly Lunada! In small towns around Mexico, community members come together informally on the night of the full moon to share stories, poetry, performances and music. Join us as this tradition is celebrated several times throughout the year. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., performances are from 6 to 7:30 p.m, and open Mic begins around 7:40 p.m. Scheduled Performers: ClownSnotBombs, Akoma Arts, Ballet Folklórico Guerreros de Guadalupe, Hālau Nā Wai Ola, and Grupo Folklórico Yolotli Guerrerense.
