Festival Description

The annual Chicano Park Day takes place in historic Chicano Park, located in the Barrio Logan community, south of downtown San Diego. This popular family event is free and open to the public. Established by Chicano activists on April 22, 1970, Chicano Park has received international recognition as a major public art site for its commanding mural paintings of the past and present struggle of Mexican and Chicano history.

Visitors to Chicano Park Day will experience traditional music and dance, including one of the most beautiful performances of Aztec Indigenous dance. In addition, there will be contemporary music and spoken word from local writers and poets. Among the traditional dance troups performing are Ballet Folklorico Yaqui, Ballet Folklorico del Centro Cultural de la Raza, and Ballet Folklorico Sabor Latino de Denver, Colorado. Musical artists performing include Quinazo, The Ledesma Brothers, Afro-Mestizo, Storm, Pachuco Jose, 2012, Los Romanticos, and Los Alacranes, featuring Chunky Sanchez.

In addition to the entertainment, there will be a display of classic low rider cars presented by Amigos Car Club, and children’s activities led by muralist Victor Ochoa. Food, arts and crafts vendors will be selling their specialties throughout Chicano Park.
