Attend the 5th Annual Chicago Mariachi Festival at Millennium Park on Sunday, June 30, 2019.
A quartet of mariachi ensembles performs at the Chicago Mariachi Festival, including the city’s own Mariachi Herencia de México. The youth ensemble is composed of musicians from Chicago’s immigrant communities and the group’s debut 2017 album, “Nuestra Herencia,” was nominated that same year for a Latin Grammy in the “Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album” category. Organizers advise arriving early as the venue will be closed once it reaches capacity.
Details: 4-8:30 p.m. Sunday at Millennium Park, 201 E. Randolph St. Free / MAP
