The family-owned Axkawa: Señor Taco Show will be providing delicious guacamole, chips, and tacos for lunch along with sweet treats for dessert by Colorado Fruit Design.

Get ready for an amazing afternoon of music and dancing! We will kick things off at 1:15PM with dance lessons led by the Valley’s own Mezcla Socials Dance. Specializing in salsa, bachata, and more, the Mezcla family is dedicated to providing space and opportunities for the community to come together through dance. Cultural dances of Mexico will then be performed at 2PM by The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico followed by Los Mocochetes at 2:45PM, a Xicanx/Funk band from Denver, CO with deep roots from the Mora Valley in northern Nuevo Mexico and to the south from Juarez, MX. Listen here! And if that wasn’t enough, DJ Joeli Villa will be getting everyone out on the dance floor to close out the afternoon. Don’t miss it!
