Mariachi Corazón de San Antonio Festival, High School Group and All-Star Competition Saturday, October 25, 2014 3pm-11pm
Every 3rd Saturday in October Main Plaza Conservancy showcases a mariachi competition between area high schools competing for the cash prize of $1,500 and the designation Best High School Level Mariachi in the San Antonio Area. An added component to the festival is the opportunity for a select group of students to continue past this event and participate in an all-area mariachi ensemble, Main Plaza Conservancy’s Mariachi Corazón de San Antonio All-Stars group. These students are groomed to be ambassadors for MPC, the City of San Antonio and Bexar County. Each student who participates in MCSA receives a $1000 scholarship towards a college or University of their choice. This will be the 3rd annual festival which encompasses a day of fun, tradition, music, cultural dance and above all educational awareness of mariachi music.
