Hear That Original Mexican Sound at the 39th Annual Festival Chicano

The 39th Annual Festival Chicano is one of the oldest, ongoing, free events of its type in the world. It is a cultural celebration of Chicano music -- from Tejano and Conjunto, to Mariachi and Orchestra. The festival is a reflection of the artistic creativity that has developed in the Chicano cultural experience after centuries of influence from native peoples, Mexico, Europeans, and the U.S.A.

Chicano music has been historically shaped by many diverse styles such as Mexican rancheras, corridos, mariachi, tejano, conjunto, big band, rhythm and blues, country, rock and roll, and many others. The festival is a celebration of culture through the music of countless generations of artists. It is truly a unique, original American sound.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows will go on rain or shine!

Even though Chartwell Court Apartments in Houston, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
