37th Annual Festival Chicano
Phone: 281-FREE-FUN or 281-373-3386
For three nights in October, Miller Outdoor Theatre becomes the world’s center for Chicano music. The 37th Annual Festival Chicano is a reflection of the artistic creativity that has developed in the Chicano cultural experience after centuries of influence from Native Peoples, Mexico, Europe, and the United States. Chicano music has been historically shaped by many diverse styles such as Tejano, Conjunto, Rancheras, Corridos, Mariachi, Big Band, Rhythm and Blues, Country, Rock and Roll, and many others. Because of its historical roots, Chicano music has vigorously survived industry neglect and economic limitations to become an original, authentic, American cultural expression. The 37th Annual Festival Chicano will showcase Chicano music through some of its most accomplished performers; it is truly a unique and original American sound.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
