Organized by the Chicano Park Steering Committee
April 21, 2012
The 42nd annual Chicano Park Day celebration will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2012, 10 am to 5 pm, in historic Chicano Park, located in the Barrio Logan community, south of downtown San Diego, under the San Diego-Coronado bridge. This family event is always free and open to the public. The theme for the 42nd Chicano Park Day, represented in the poster designed by Victor Cordero, is "Lowriders: Part of Chicano Park's History, Culture, Pride & Future!'
Established by Chicano activists on April 22, 1970, Chicano Park has received international recognition as a major public art site for its commanding mural paintings of the past and present struggle of Mexican and Chicano history. Visitors to Chicano Park Day will experience traditional music and dance, including one of the most beautiful performances of Aztec Indigenous dance, coordinated by Toltecas en Aztlán.
