About Vive Oaxaca Guelaguetza - 2021 Virtual Festival

Senderos will present Guelaguetza, a Oaxacan indigenous cultural festival as a free virtual event on Sunday, May 16 streaming at 11AM on Facebook at: guelaguetzasantacruz OR at our website:

This year’s event will feature new performances by Senderos's Centeotl Danza y Baile and Ensamble Musical, as well as special guest performances from Oaxaca 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 Senderos dancers and musicians have been keeping the spirit of guelaguetza year-round. 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.

This event is presented by Senderos, a volunteer-based nonprofit in Santa Cruz providing free dance and music classes, tutoring and scholarships for Latinx youth. Funding for for the Guelaguetza comes from 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-San Jose, Santa Cruz City Schools, and many individual and business donors.
