The Sixth Annual Selena Quintanilla Fan Gathering Happens This Weekend
Latinos can celebrate Selena Quintanilla on any given day. We can honor her legacy on the day of her birth, on the day she left us, and any day of the week. That is why we’re totally down to go on a Selena cruise, or going to Corpus Christie or dressing up as her on Halloween.
But, let’s be real, we don’t need a birthday, or anniversary or Halloween to come around to celebrate the Tejano queen. And that’s exactly why we’re looking forward to an event right here at home.
The sixth annual Selena Fan Gathering is taking place on Saturday, June 1 in Los Angeles.
The day event is filled with so much love for the Queen of Tejano including live performances, vendors, giveaways, contests, raffles, DJ, impersonators, art, and a life-size photo prop.
Special guests includes Mario “Scar” from Cholos Try.
We know what you’re thinking? You want to show up and recreate the “Anything for Salinas” scene, right? Yup, us too. Organizers suggest showing up super early if you want a photo op with Scar.
Muralist Levi Ponce will also be there to talk to fans and create a new Selena mural.
Ponce has created some of the most stunning murals featuring Latino pioneers. Click here to see some more of his incredible work.
The Selinas independent vendors will be there selling the cutest Selena merch.
The Colombian vendors are coming a long way to meet L.A. fans, and we cannot wait to get our hands on these cool items.
The Como La Flor band will also be there.
Saturday’s event will be poppin’ with the best Selena tribute cover bands.
