In honor of the Museum’s month long MLK, Jr. Multicultural Fest Celebration, we’re inviting representatives from Fiestas Mexicanas and Mariachi Northwest Festival to join us in a discussion around the rich culture and diversity of some of the Wenatchee Valley’s community festivals and celebrations. Learn about Fiestas Mexicanas, dedicated to preserving and promoting area Latino heritage and culture through celebrations based upon Latino traditions. Learn about the Fiestas Mexicanas celebration, the history, lifestyle and people of Mexico, and the ways this event and culture has influenced our community. And hear about Mariachi Northwest Festival, an organization dedicated to student workshops and performances that celebrate music and education, with student recognition and enrichment with activities utilizing professional musicians and emphasizing Mexican heritage. Learn about the festival’s plans for 2021, as well as the history and significance of mariachi music, and the ways this style of music is celebrated in our community. Finally, hear from Disney animated voiceover artist, Wilbur Zaldivar, and be captured by his rendition of a traditional Mexican tale.
