To celebrate the life and prolific work of El Divo de Juárez, Mercado369 will host the First Annual Juan Gabriel Festival on Saturday, August 25th. This event is free and open to the community and the festivities will be held at the Mercado369 beginning at 1pm and will continue up until midnight.
They are expanding this event from its original concept to host a series of entertaining performances, which will include musical entertainment, folkloric dance, a special guest appearance by a professional Juan Gabriel impersonator, an open mic talent show, and an art contest! Throughout the day, lucky guests will receive prize giveaways. See schedule below for the full breakdown of planned activities.
Select a winner to the Juan Gabriel inspired art contest and award them a $300 cash prize! Casting your vote is easy: With every food item purchased from the food vendors, you’ll receive a voting ticket. Each painting will have a ballot box where you can place your acquired tickets to select your favorite. The painting with the most tickets in their box wins.
If you’d like to be part of our art contest we encourage you to take part of the free Open Studio on Saturday, August 18th. Click here for details: Open Studio.
