¡VivaFest!/El Grito (FREE!)

September 15th, 2013
2pm – 9:30pm

Join us on Sunday, September 15, 2013 in downtown San Jose as we extend our “hands across the border” and celebrate Mexico’s ¡VivaFest!/El Grito and the American Dream Latino style with a full day and evening of music, food, community events and cultural celebrations!

Before the Festival, stop by Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph (80 S. Market Street, San Jose, CA) for a special Mariachi Mass at 10:00 am.

VivaFest welcomes this year a very special guest of honor: Consul General Carlos Ponce Martinez, of the San Jose Mexican Consulate, who will lead the community in celebrating Mexico’s Independence Day on the Main Stage at 9:00PM.
