Amalia’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration
5/5/2012 5:00 PM
Category: Festivals & Fairs
/ Cost: $10 for adults, age 17 & under: Free
Les Schwab Amphitheater
Old Mill District
Amalia’s Restaurant Cinco de Mayo party moves to Les Schwab Amphitheater this year, based on the popular street festival that took over downtown Bend last year. The largest Central Oregon Cinco de Mayo party ever, this evening will be filled with an incredible line-up of nationally recognized musicians including: Miami’s “Expresion Latina” and their ground shaking performance of Power-Salsa; NPR’s best artist of 2011 “Diego Garcia”, former “Elefant” front man; and finishing the night off with the high energy beats of “Hacienda!” This fiesta is certain to top Amalia’s Cinco de Mayo party held last year where thousands of people danced in the streets to the sounds of Ozomatli. This celebration overlaps with the new Festival de Banderas (Festival of Flags) family cultural celebration which starts at 10am in the amphitheater on the same day. Tickets will be available at the Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District, Amalia’s 915 NW Wall Street downtown Bend, along with other sponsor locations for only $10.00. Tickets are good for both events. Children 17 and younger are free. All members of the community are encouraged to participate in this event and celebrate the Festival de Banderas, Cinco de Mayo, all the color, music, culture and cuisine. Proceeds will support the Central Oregon Latino Scholarship Fund.
