“Hear the vibrant blast of trumpets, the strumming of guitars, and the harmonic blend of voices in song … continue walking and smell the aroma of food being prepared on an outdoor grill. Listen as the sound of laughing children mixes with the rhythmic blend of music and dance on a wooden stage. Turn the corner and you’ve entered the world of … mariachis, dancers, children, and people from all walks of life come together in a unique blend of cultural interaction and education … you have the opportunity to listen to and to see the best mariachi groups in the world; to watch the swirling of brightly colored dresses and hear the sharp clap
of heels against stage floors…1” These were the words used for an advertisement for the 2000 TIMC Fiesta Garibaldi. Words that continue to resonate today, to describe the event thousands of people enjoy. Join us for the all-day festivities of art, culture and food.
