“Mexican and Chicano history”
Established by Chicano activists on April 22, 1970, Chicano Park has received international recognition as a major public art site for its commanding mural paintings of the past and present struggle of Mexican and Chicano history. This year’s Chicano Park Day anniversary celebration is dedicated to Chicano Park and the Chicano Park Murals being added to the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors to Chicano Park Day will experience traditional music and dance, including one of the most beautiful performances of Aztec Indigenous dance, coordinated by Danza Azteca Calpulli Mexihca. The event will also include a blessing by Tim Red Bird and the Red Warriors, ballet folklorico groups, numerous bands and speakers representing the Brown Berets de Aztlán, Amigos Car Club, Via International, and the Chicano Park Steering Committee. In addition, there will be a display of classic lowrider cars presented byAmigos Car Club, children’s art workshop led by muralist Victor Ochoa and various informational booths. Food, arts and crafts vendors will be selling their specialties throughout Chicano Park.
If you like street art, this is a must visit place!
I would only go during the day though, as it might be sketchy at night. People in the area are super friendly too!
