Fiesta de Noche Buena

December 10 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

.

Many Mexicans celebrate throughout a long holiday season, with traditional posadas (reenactments of Mary and Joseph’s search for an inn), the Feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe, church services, and Three Kings Day. Perhaps no other event, however, captures the spirit of joyous anticipation during the holidays as La Noche Buena. Translated literally, the holiday means “The Good Night” and refers to the night before Christmas Day. Marked by large gatherings of family and friends, La Noche Buena includes traditional foods, adornos or decorations, and an air of festive anticipation.

Returning for its third year, Fiesta de Noche Buena will feature Mexican traditions blended with border spirit. Guests will enjoy lively performances, activities, artisan wares, traditional foods and plenty of adorable photo opportunities.
