About the Event

We are excited to announce our First Loteria Fest!  Our mission is to create a community gathering and family-friendly event that celebrates the rich and diverse Mexican culture,  showcasing local works of art, and provides economic opportunities for local artists/artisans/crafters and community based organizations.

 

What is Loteria?  The 133 year old Loteria (Mexican BINGO) game is steeped in family tradition and is a fun activity for all ages.  Loteria has been played as a game of chance, as a pastime, and for educational purposes. Because the Loteria cards include the name of the pictured character, they are used to teach reading, writing, history, and social values. Many bilingual teachers use the game as a teaching tool in the United States.
