La Fiesta de Guadalupe
The DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun hosts annually La Fiesta de Guadalupe. This festival honors Mexico’s patron saint with music, dancing and performances including mariachi bands, folklorico dancers, the Yaqui Deer Dancers and Domingo DeGrazia’s Spanish-guitar band. The festival also features a Los Posada procession where children from the Carrillo Magnet School sing in honor of the saint culminating at the Mission in the Sun. Local food and art vendors offer southwestern fare and souvenirs to guests. The event is free and open to the public.
Every year on June 14th, from 10-4, we celebrate Ted DeGrazia’s birthday with free cake and ice cream! Stroll through the 10-acre gallery grounds on this special day to see the art and architecture of Arizona’s acclaimed artist as we celebrate his birth in the copper mining camp of Morenci on June 14, 1909.
