A festival celebrating Indigenous Oaxacan arts and culture
Join us for a free celebration of art, folklórico dance, and music inspired by the world-famous Guelaguetza festival from the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The celebration will be presented alongside the opening of Sergio Hernández: Embers of Oaxaca on view November 12, 2022–February 12, 2023. This event is presented in partnership with the Mexican Consulate General of San Diego and the Baja California Secretary of Culture.
The program will feature six traditional dances from regions throughout the state of Oaxaca, plus regional songs, all directed by Mexicali-based Compañía Esplendor Folklórico. There will also be free, family-friendly art-making activities, and artworks for sale by artist vendors from Oaxaca.
