The Chicano Music Festival showcases the rich diversity of Chicano music, including rancheras, calypso, cumbias, traditional ballads, waltzes and polkas – the textured and powerful sounds of folk trios – Chicano rock ensembles and mariachis.

A celebration of music, art and culture, this year marks Su Teatro Cultural and Performing Arts Center‘s 19th annual Chicano Music Festival.

The line-up of bands includes Tejano Hearts, the Jon Maez Band performing some of the best New Mexico sounds in Colorado, and The Mood Express - a Denver “Chicano Big Band” and 2014 Inductee in the Chicano Music Hall of Fame.

The documenatary ”Lalo Guerrero: The Original Chicano” – outlining the life story of the legendary Lalo Guerrero “Father of Chicano Music”  - will be screened on July 31. The film takes viewers through 70 years of Mexicano/Chicano history using Guerrero’s music as the background.  

This festival is Su Teatro’s annual centerpiece fundraiser and along with live music, includes a silent and live auction featuring Chicano art by local and national artists.

Food is a big part of the event, festival goers can treat themselves to roasted corn, hotdogs and hamburgers with fresh roasted green chile and more!
