Chicago Mariachi Festival
Time Out says
The Mariachi Heritage Foundation and the National Museum of Mexican Art welcome world-class mariachi ensembles to Pritzker Pavilion for a day of free performances (and dancing)—it's the largest event of its kind in the United States. This year's lineup includes Mexican singer Aida Cuevas, Chicago-based student ensemble Mariachi Herencia de México, Mexico City band Mariachi Juvenil Tecalitlan and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley outfit Mariachi Aztlán. Leave the booze at home for this one—there is no outside alcohol permitted at the Chicago Mariachi Festival.
