This spring, Fiesta de Reyes offers live, free entertainment every day of the week. The stage, located in the Fiesta de Reyes courtyard, will host a variety of authentic folk-culture performances for the pleasure of diners, shoppers and passers-by. All performances are free and open to the public.
Folklórico dancing will be performed on the Fiesta de Reyes stage Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. The term folklórico means “folk dance” in Spanish and is a collective term for traditional Latin American dances that celebrate local folk culture. Dancers wear brightly colored costumes reflecting traditional Spanish influence and dance to music featuring horns and guitars. The dancing groups at Fiesta de Reyes consist of professional dancers, students and young children.
On Wednesdays, Mariachi Divinas, the only all-female mariachi group in San Diego, will occupy the Fiesta de Reyes stage from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m.
On Fridays, the Fiesta de Reyes stage will welcome Luis Max & Blue Moon from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The band features music straight from the heart and was influenced by growing up in Mexico. Its sounds are a fusion of Latin, rock and pop music. Rich in Latin percussion with a hint of jazz, it will satisfy even the most sophisticated of musical tastes.
Last and surely not least, Fiesta de Reyes also has a roving house Mariachi band. Los Rios performs every Monday, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 3:30 p.m. Los Rios sings traditional mariachi songs, Santana, Kool and the Gang and even Pink Floyd tunes.
