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.
