Fountain Stage at Regents Square
¡Fiesta Latina! is a cultural event organized by Western New Mexico University to recognize and celebrate New Mexico’s Latin American heritage, customs and traditions. The four-day outdoor festival on the beautiful WNMU campus in Silver City features Latin music and dance performances, food and drink, traditional children’s activities, a charro show, and a juried artisan mercado, featuring the traditional folk-art of more than 30 artisans from throughout Mexico. This wonderful family event is now in its fourth year and was expanded after a two-year hiatus.
There are both free and paid events.
Free events include a music stage featuring entertainment throughout the weekend, including Mariachi Los Camperos, Nohe & Sus Santos, an artisan mercado, children’s activities, Mariachi Plata de WNMU, Ballet Folkorico Alfaro, Castro Family Charros, indigenous dance, and more. There will be children’s crafting activities throughout the weekend in the dedicated Children’s Tent and demonstrations by visiting artisans at their booths in the artisan tent. The festival will also offer additional demonstrations and lectures.
Ticketed events include a Friday night dance (June 17) with Cuarenta y Cinco, a group that performs a blend of rancheras, cumbias, balses, boleros, country/western, oldies and modern rock, opening for Darren Cordova Friday night. Saturday’s tequila tasting will offer tastes of 10 fine tequilas and a tequilero handcrafted in Mexico.
