We are getting several invitations to participate in community events. I am happy that we are in demand. We will make every effort to be involved and hope that parents will continue to support our center the way they have done for the past ten years. Please refer to our calendar for classes and events. This year is very promising and we have several great students that will make us all proud of them.

We will continue to have monthly Fiddle Blue Grass Jams at KCC Hall and will make an effort to start a Mariachi Jam sessions as well. Both will be free to the public.

We plan to have Fiesta Mexicana 2015 on Saturday August 15, 2015 at Hanford Civic Auditorium and we Plan to have Dia de los Muertos Celebration in our Center Sunday November 1, 2015. It will be a busy year for all of us.

Also, we are renting the KCC Hall for a low price of $150/4 hour use. Need space for a birthday party, graduation, family gathering, wedding shower or baby shower. It accomodates about 125 people.

Kings Cultural Center

The Kings Cultural Center is under Kings Regional Traditional Folk Arts which is a public not for profit organization founded to expand the artistic opportunities for the youth of Kings County and surrounding communities. The purpose of the organization is to promote artistic programs (Mariachi music, Folklorico dance, Hip Hop, Salsa Dancing, Painting, and Video documentary) for youth residents in Kings County, instill cultural pride and to broaden an understanding of our heritage. The groupís primary activity is the creation, preservation and promotion of traditional ethnic events, presenting an average of 22 community performances annually including Spring and Fall Recitals.

Kings Cultural Center was opened to promote family oriented activities with cultural pride in our communities through the medium of music, dance and the arts. The organization participates in events not involving smoking or drug and alcohol activities. The families involved are multi-cultural and from different economic backgrounds. Families are from rural settings such as Kettleman City, Corcoran, Tulare, Lemoore, Armona and Hanford. The hope is to instill in children an appreciation of cultural activity in Kings County.
