FREE Outdoor Festival
“A grand fiesta” (OC Register) returns to Orange County with the fourth annual Heartbeat of Mexico festival. Last year’s gathering drew more than 6,500 people to the Musco Center for the Arts and Aitken Arts Plaza at Chapman University over Memorial Day weekend in a gathering of Mexican culture. The festival returns in 2019 with superstar duo Jesse & Joy, the iconic Alicia Villarreal, and Lupillo Rivera performing with Mariachi.
Free events include a large-scale family-friendly community outdoor festival, a new celebration of Ballet Folklórico, and a six-week cultural arts and lecture series that explores the depths of Mexican and Mexican-American culture.
Discover the cultural depth and richness of traditional and contemporary Mexican and Mexican-American arts and entertainment with free and ticketed events throughout the weekend including immersive activities for kids and families. Heartbeat of Mexico honors Mexican culture, traditions and family, and encourages everyone, from all ethnic backgrounds, to share in the beauty of Mexico’s rich history, music, and art.
