The Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center will host its 15th annual Viva México celebration. The celebration will include live music and dance performances, panel discussions, family-friendly art activities, and a mercado by Frida Friday ATX. Special guest hosts from Univision will lead the evening’s programming as the Masters of Ceremonies.

Viva Mexico is an Austin tradition that pays tribute to both Mexico’s Independence Day and to the diverse cultural traditions of Austin’s Mexican, Mexican-American, Latino/a/x, and Tejano community. This year is extra special because it’s their 15th anniversary, and Viva Mexico was the first event ever hosted by the MACC in 2007. Because it’s their 15th birthday, or “quinceneara,” the MACC will celebrate the past, present, and future, and it will also be the last Viva Mexico on-site before the building goes into its next phase of construction.

Exhibits and panel discussions with collaborative partners will explore Latinidad, identity, and Austin history.
