The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Performing Arts Centers is hosting its third annual Festival de Mariachi.

This festival runs for four days from April 13-16 and is expected to have many activities for students and the local community to enjoy. The festival kicks off at 7 p.m. with a free screening of “Canciones de mi Padre”, a 1989 PBS best performance of Linda Ronstadt. 

Throughout the festival, attendees can shop around with vendors, take part in crafts led by local artists and enjoy Mariachi groups ranging from local schools to well-known groups.

Don’t miss out on all the fun and bring the whole family to celebrate the end of the festival at the Mariachi Mass, which will take place at the Corpus Cathedral on Sunday, April 16 at 11 a.m.
