About Guelaguetza Santa Cruz 2021 - Virtual


Senderos will present a free virtual Guelaguetza festival on Sunday, May 16 streaming at 11AM. You can join us on Facebook at guelaguetzasantacruz or our website scsenderos.org

This year’s event will feature new performances by Centeotl Danza y Baile and Ensamble Musical de Senderos. We have the honor to share Guelaguetza all the way from Oaxaca with performances by danzantes from La Villa De Zaachila and bailarines from Huajuapan de León y Tlaxiaco.

For the second year due to COVID restrictions, we are not able to be together in person in downtown Santa Cruz for our authentic food, music, dance, crafts cultural festival like those held annually in Oaxaca, Mexico.
But our dancers and musicians have been keeping the spirit of guelaguetza year round and are excited to share it with you. Guelaguetza means a commitment of sharing and cooperation, and that is something that Senderos and so many in our community have been dedicated to throughout this pandemic.

Vive Oaxaca Guelaguetza--Indigenous Cultural Arts Festival in Santa Cruz, California is supported in part by the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Southwest Airlines and the Surdna Foundation through a grant from the NALAC Fund for the Arts Grant Program. We also receive support from Alliance for California Traditional Arts, Arts Council Santa Cruz County, California Arts Council, Community Foundation Santa Cruz County, Consul General de Mexico en San Jose, Santa Cruz City Schools, and many individual and business donors.

This event benefits Senderos, a volunteer-based nonprofit in Santa Cruz providing free dance and music classes, tutoring and scholarships for Latinx youth.
