As one of Tucson's signature events, the award-winning Tucson International Mariachi Conference includes three public performances and a series of workshops for youth, conducted during a conference that is legendary as a model for other cities.  The conference is hosted at Casino Del Sol Resort, Spa & Conference Center, in the Conference Center and at AVA Amphitheater outdoor concert venue. During the public performances, renowned entertainers perform to sold-out audiences of mariachi aficionados. This year, performers will include Mariachi Internacional Guadalajara and Mariachi Divas. The conference was created three decades ago to pass on traditions of mariachi music, thus keeping Tucson's rich Mexican-American cultural heritage alive. Every year, hundreds students from all over the world visit Tucson to learn mariachi music and folklorico dance from experienced masters of both genres at the conference. These youth gain valuable experience in teamwork, individual responsibility and the importance of tradition. For more information visit www.tucsonmariachi.org.
