Legendary Latin band Malo will headline the 2nd Annual Menudo Festival at the Visalia Convention Center on Sunday, October 19.
Malo is celebrating over 40 years of performing worldwide and has shared the stage with celebrated groups such as the Rolling Stones and Queen. The band’s 1972 hit single, “Suavecito,” is described as the “ultimate Hispanic love song,” and four decades later is still one of the most-played oldies on classic radio.
The event is sponsored by Budweiser and will be filled with traditional music and performances including mariachi, Latin rock and Ballet Folklórico dancers. Attendees will have various local restaurants and food vendors to select their choice of menudo and other Mexican dishes as they enjoy the entertainment. The event will run from 9am to 2pm with Malo performing at noon.
Pre-sale tickets are $10. Proceeds of the event will benefit TCLMAW fund raising efforts to provide scholarships to local high school students.
