April 2, 2023
El Puente Festival

Event Summary

Enjoy an afternoon of the Valley’s most talented youth performers at the 11th Annual El Puente Festival.

A unique festival dedicated to making connections, El Puente, the Spanish word for bridge, brings people together by sharing diverse music, dance, art and cultural traditions.

Attendees will enjoy mariachi performances, ballet folklorico dances and theatrics by some of the Valleys most talented young people from ages 6 to 17. Kids craft activities and opportunities to join in the performances is one of the highlights of this annual festival.

Cultural Coalition is also delighted to share that the parade of dancers, musicians, masked performers and over-sized puppets designed by master sculptor Zarco Guerreo will once again be crossing the Tempe Pedestrian Bridge in front of the Tempe Center for the Arts. This tradition invites festival attendees of all ages to be a part of the festival by joining the parade across the bridge and back.
