Welcome - Bienvenidos to ¡VivaFest!

Welcome to VivaFest! the Bay Area’s destination for celebrating the culture and musical heart of Mexico and Latino spirit. VivaFest is more than one event – we’re a cultural institute without walls – providing access to heritage music and dance education, concerts, speakers events, visual arts exhibitions, new media, and arts advocacy, throughout San Jose and the Bay Area. We produce cultural events, videos, and television programs that tell the stories of our Latino community. We provide standards-based mariachi music education to our public schools. We advocate for heritage arts education online, through national media outlets and in our neighborhoods.

Welcome to our house – and experience the many hearts of our heritage.
