Heartbeat of Mexico Free Outdoor Festival Sunday, May 27 at 1pm
Musco Center for the Arts at Chapman University is pleased to announce that over 20 regional acts were selected to perform on three stages at the third annual Heartbeat of Mexico’s free Outdoor Festival on Sunday, May 27, 2018 from 1pm to 7:30pm.
Featuring some of the top local and regional Mexican-American ensembles in Southern California, the festival will present traditional and contemporary music, dance, and folklórico performances to the community. Every region of Mexico has its own dance style, music, and costuming from a variety of cultural influences, including the indigenous tribes, Spanish, Africans, Germans, and the French. The performances selected for this year’s event reflect the beauty of Mexico’s rich history, music, and art.
In addition to the performances, the festival will feature a variety of family fun activities, a food fair, and many more events outside on Aitken Arts Plaza. Family activity highlights include: creating a Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera-inspired zine, shouting ¡Loteria! during a hilariously popular group game with similarities to bingo, making paper flowers and papel picado, and exploring the regional cultures with the Consulate of Mexico during a fun Passport Adventure Game.
