Fiesta Mexicana 2015 at Hanford Civic Auditorium on Saturday August 15, 2015. BUY YOUR TICKET ENTRANCE NOW!!. If you buy your ticket in July it will be 20 dollars, and if you buy it in August then it will be 25 dollars. The entrance at the door will be 30 dollars on the day of the event. The ticket includes the entrance, the dinner plate and one drink. Children under five enter free.

We have contracted Danzantes de Aztlan from Fresno State to perform along with Teocalli Academy also from Fresno. Both organizations will attempt to do better than the other, but Sol del Valle will stand out the most because is our local youth talent. In addition, professinal mariachi Tenochtitlan will perform with our mariachistas of Mariachi los Reyes. Fiddlers and Hawaiian specialty performance will also be featured.

This will be our last Fiesta Mexicana because of the rising cost involved in making the event happen. All good things must come to an end. Despite all the help from the city of hanford, our beloved event will be final this year. Enjoy it one last time.

THANK YOU PARENTS,

Juan R. Medina, Exec. Director

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.
