Celebrate Mexican culture and tradition with the Federacion Hidalguense at the Winchester Dondero Cultural Center, at 3130 McLeod near Desert Inn, on Saturday, September 16, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Come together in a family-friendly atmosphere with Mexican dishes, crafts, and cultural demonstrations to enjoy performances by local traditional dance groups and live music from local musicians from across the Valley. Learn some of Mexico’s rich history and cultural significance through the eyes of people keeping the traditions alive in Las Vegas. This event, sponsored by Commissioner Tick Segerblom, has free admission.
The Federacion Hidalguense is a non-profit organization that supports migrants in the United States who are at risk and need protection and advice to protect the rights of each one. They believe in urgently raising public awareness about today’s society’s most pressing issues, such as education, financial matters, and culture.
This year’s event is the fourth year of the Federacion Hidalguense Cultural Event at Winchester, and this year will be bigger and better than the last, with some returning favorite performers and new groups to share the culture. With various vendors arriving this year, participants can see multiple traditional crafts created to show how art is created in Mexico.
Those interested can call the Winchester Dondero Cultural Center at (702) 455-7340.
