25th Annual Fiesta Septiembre
25th Annual Fiesta de Septiembre
The Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce is once again the proud sponsor of the 25th Annual Fiesta de Septiembre, scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 in historic downtown Wickenburg, Arizona.
The colorful event runs from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. indoors and outside of the Wickenburg Community Center, located at 160 N. Valentine Street in the heart of the historic district.
Fiesta de Septiembre recognizes the Town's early Hispanic Pioneer families and kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month in Arizona. Fiesta de Septiembre is a designated Wickenburg Sesquicentennial event, and what better way to recognize the history of early Wickenburg Pioneers!
The Silver Anniversary scheduled events include: Pioneer Hispanic Families Photographs Exhibit, Limited edition poster, entertainment throughout the day with Mariachi Corazon de Phoenix, Mariachi Alegre, Ballet Folklorico de Santa Maria, and music by Phoenix's own Barrio Latino.
A special book "Nuestras Memorias: Wickenburg Hispanic Pioneer Families" will be available to purchase during the day. Outdoors you'll find a Mercado with arts & crafts, and booths offering a variety of merchandise and tasty food. In addition, a "no-host" margarita & cerveza cantina will have delicious drinks throughout the day.
The Kids Zona program is where children learn how to make Mexican crafts and participate in the Piñata contest. Other activities include: Viva Margarita! Contest, where contestants concoct their favorite recipes, and compete for prizes. Another great event is the annual salsa & guacamole contests, where you'll find contestants creating their favorite recipes for prizes and the coveted "People's Choice Award". Contact the chamber for entry forms.
The Fiesta is held each year to celebrate Wickenburg's Hispanic Heritage, and has expanded each year in detail and activities.
Joining the Chamber as sponsors include: Crescent Crown Distributing-Modelo, Corona, Tecate, Coors & Coors Light, Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Arizona Public Service, The Wickenburg Sun, Arizona Office of Tourism, and Compadres of Fiesta de Septiembre.
Registration forms are available for the Margarita, Guacamole and Salsa Contests held during Fiesta de Septiembre.
Cash award and special plaques are presented to the winners in various categories.
The popular "People's Choice" awards are also given.
