Route 78 Rotary of North County San Diego is sponsoring its 6th Annual Mariachi Festival on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. This annual festival draws Mariachi fans from San Marcos, Escondido, Carlsbad, Vista, Oceanside, San Diego, and as far away as Corona, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Covina, and El Centro.
The fun begins at 12:30 p.m. with the popular Tacos & Tequila Reception at the Sculpture Courtyard of Center for the Arts Museum in Escondido with the smell of sizzling carnitas, and carne asada tacos on open-grills wafting across the grounds of the Center for the Arts.
The Mariachi Concert takes place at 3 p.m. in the beautiful 1500-seat at the beautiful performing arts Concert Hall. Back by popular demand, the Mariachi Festival will again feature world renowned, Grammy nominated, Mariachi Sol de Mexico and an all-female Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, also an internationally renowned Mariachi. Both groups will have you stomping your feet and singing old favorite songs to your hearts content. Ballet Folk
