Viva Venezuela Festival in Katy TX

Viva Venezuela Festival in Katy TX

 

One consistent theme I have included in numerous of the articles I write is Katy has something to offer to everyone. This statement is essentially a fact! Here is another wonderful example as the 5TH annual Viva Venezuela Festival will be held on Saturday September 12, 2015 at the Tellepsen Arena at the Great Southwestern Equestrian Center in Katy. Venezuelans love to dance, love music, having fun and food. This festival will include all those elements plus others. You do not have to be Venezuelan to love all of these things!

 

The music will consist of a wide range of genres from folk music to pop. Headlining the event will be Chino y Nacho who are a Venezuelan duo and won the latin Grammy in 2010  In addition, Venezuelan duo Caibo will also perform.

 

The Festival began in 2011 with approximately 1,600 people attending. The first year attendance was excellent for any event just beginning. This year as this Festival has grown by leaps and bounds, the organizers are estimating the number of attendees will exceed last year’s record attendance of 8,500.

 

The festival draws music fans from across South America, Central America and Mexico. Available food has been described by organizers as a blend of Italian, Spanish, Latin and other indigenous food cuisines.   

 

A large number of Venezuelans have migrated from their country to the Katy and surrounding areas over the last 15 plus years. One huge connection of course is the oil industry here in the Houston area plus the various political problems which have plagued Venezuela for many years. Katy TX has earned the distinction of the nickname of Katy-zuela over the last so many years. I can attest to the fact there are numerous native Spanish speakers who all work out at Life Time Fitness in Katy with my wife Yolanda being one of those.  

 

The Great Southwestern Equestrian Center is easy to find and the physical address is 2501 S. mason Road katy TX 77450. This directly across the street from one of the Cinco Ranch communities.

 

This will be a fantastic Festival to attend if you are a music fan, love good food and having fun and it really does not matter if are not Latin.

 

Here is a link to a YouTube Video I found of Chino y Nacho ( this video has had over 107 million views! Wow.. ) to give you a flavor of the music you can expect to hear.  The music will be wonderful..
