VivaFest! a.k.a. San Jose Mexican Heritage and Mariachi Festival celebrates the city's rich Mexican heritage with the largest festival of its type in the nation.

Featuring live music, dance workshops, special events, outdoor celebrations and performances by some of the biggest names in mariachi and traditional music from Mexico, this family-oriented event draws more than 50,000 people each year.

The 22nd Annual VivaFest will bring world class musical talent to San Jose, along with a range of cultural and artistic programming. The premiere event, "What a Difference the Music Makes: A Tribute to the Songbook of Romantic Mexico," will feature renowned Mexican tenor Fernando de la Moda and Mariachi Sol de Mexico, along with a host of local talent. The concert will take place on September 7, 2013 at San Jose's HP Pavilion Arena, with tickets available through Ticketmaster or at the box office.

The festival kicks off Labor Day weekend with three days of mariachi and ballet folklorico workshops at The Tech in downtown San Jose. Mariachi workshops will be led by Jose Hernandez of Mariachi Sol de Mexico and dance workshops will be led by award winner Maria Luisa Colmenares, founder of Danzantes Unidos.

_______________________________________

The 22nd San Jose Mexican Heritage Festival returns with a handful of shows in September, all at different venues and on different days. The first (and biggest) is on the 7th at the SAP Center, It’s a night of tender love ballads. Headlining is Fernando De La Mora who is Mexico's most well-known operatic tenor-and boy can he croon. He'll be backed by Symphony Silicon Valley singing some heart-wrenching sentimental tunes. Also performing on the 7th will be Mariachi Sol De Mexico, one of the most famous mariachi ensembles of all time. Lead by Jose L Hernandez, they bring the authentic heritage of mariachi to the stage-and sing some pretty romantic songs as well. (Aaron Carnes)
