Our Purpose

Mariachi Plaza Festival Foundation 'MPFF' is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) public benefit corporation whose specific purpose is to support the community by promotion of education, public awareness, preservation of the Mariachi art form, and programs geared towards cultural enrichment of the public.

"Mariachis are the cultural soul and treasure of the Plaza."

Annually held in November, our festivals include the 'Mariachi Plaza Festival' and the 'Fiesta de Santa Cecilia'. The event provides a special haven for the community to gather and celebrate meaningful performances by live Mariachi ensembles and talents. In showing appreciation towards our community, the festival is provided for the cities of Boyle Heights, East Los Angeles, and surrounding neighborhoods to enjoy.
