Noche Azul: Homenaje a La Virgen de Guadalupe
December 12, 2015
This Noche Azul falls on the day that the Virgen de Guadaulpe performed the miracle of the tilma, when her image miraculously appeared on Juan Diego’s cloak. Azul will honor her through music, not only as a Catholic religious icon but as a symbol of Mexico and of feminist strength.

Tickets are $5 más o menos at the door. Doors open at 7:15. Seating is on a first come first served basis. Concessions will be sold and the concert is open to all ages.
