We hold this Fiesta to promote pride in language and Hispano culture by sharing our authentic food, colorful dances by Ballet Folklorico de Durango and live Mexican music!
 
This year’s live music is a special treat with a famously popular Mexican norteño band called Grupo Control, who bill themselves as “Los Reyes de La Cumbia” or kings of the cumbia. Originally from the small town of Control in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico, the group released their original album in 2000 and has continually gained fame and fans across the United States and Mexico. Their 90-minute set begins at 5:30 p.m. Ballet Folklorico de Durango begins at 5 p.m. followed with a piñata for children, and the annual grito contest to celebrate the loudest and most authentic Mexicano Shout.
 
Our community partners Compañeros will have an information booth and also sell handcrafted items to benefit their work helping the immigrant community and their loved ones through advocacy, education and integrative programs. Prospective and current students, their families, alumni and community members are encouraged to attend.
 
The purpose of Fiesta on the Mesa is to kick-off FLC’s month-long celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month which is celebrated nationally from September 15-October 15. The date also commemorates one of Mexico’s most important national holidays known as “El Dia del Grito.”
