MARIACHI PLAZA FESTIVA
ARIACHI PLAZA FESTIVA
Sunday, Nov. 23
Free event features performances by Mariachi Sol de Mexico, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles and Mariachi Voz de America.
Mariachi Plaza is located in Boyle Heights, a few minutes east of Downtown L.A. The plaza takes its name from the mariachis who have gathered there in their elegant charro suits since the 1930s. Many of the musicians - they’re hired to perform in restaurants, private parties or community events - live in the historic Boyle Hotel, aka “Mariachi Hotel.” Located across from Mariachi Plaza, the 1889 building recently completed a $25-million renovation that added 51 apartments and the Mariachi Cultural Center. The Metro Rail Gold Line has a stop conveniently located beneath the square named Mariachi Plaza Station.
