Admission is free.

Fiesta del Norte is an interactive Hartford-based Mariachi band that performs traditional, folk and popular Mexican music on authentic instruments. The musicians dress in customary charro outfits as they interweave songs with translations, storytelling, joyful gritos and cultural insights. They describe their music as "always uplifting, interactive and in many cases - educational."

The public is encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the local food bank.
