2017 Feria del Mariachi

Hello Mariachi Directors,


It is once again time for our Texas State Feria del Mariachi!

Our festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 6, 2017.


This year, we are excited to proclaim that Mariachi Nueva Generacion has completed 20 YEARS of existence at our institution.  To celebrate this milestone, we are bringing back some of our incredibly talented alumni for a special performance.  These three ladies are the “Best in the US” winners at the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza:

And as always, we will feature Texas State’s own,

Mariachi Nueva Generacion
