The Mariachi USA Festival was founded by Rodri J. Rodriguez, an artist, executive producer, and lover of mariachi music. She created the festival in 1990 after falling in love with traditional Mexican music. Rodriguez is originally from Cuba and came to America as part of the Operation Pedro Pan exodus. Although she faced many challenges and people who did not believe she could do it, the Mariachi USA festival is doing well and is already on its 25th year. Rodriguez says her success is due to the fans that always come back year after year.
The Hollywood Bowl is a historic arena in Hollywood and has been home to thousands of concerts throughout the years. It has even been named Pollstar magazine’s Best Major Outdoor Venue for an incredible 10 years! What makes the Hollywood Bowl so special is that it is an outdoor venue, and in the summer months, it’s a great way be outside and enjoy the weather. Food and drinks are available, but feel free to bring along a picnic to enjoy while at the concert.
