AARP is offering San Antonians of all ages a wide variety of free events for Hispanic Heritage Month, including AARP San Antonio’s signature event, the 9th annual “Celebrando con AARP,” on Oct. 2 at Traders Village.
San Antonio has a rich Hispanic heritage, and AARP is inviting everyone to celebrate the contributions made by generations of San Antonio Hispanics in particular, and Hispanics across the country.
The free event will get residents outdoors to have fun and socialize. There will be a community resource fair, giveaways, and live music.
Some of the top Tejano bands will be playing such as Chente Barrera and his band Taconazo, the David Farias Band, and the South Texas Homies—all are Grammy and Tejano Music Award winners.
“I’ll be here with Taconazo playing Tejano. David Farias is bringing his Tejano/ Conjunto sound. Then, the South Texas Homies end Celebrando with their Tejano/Conjunto music. This is not my first Celebrando, so I already know it’s going to be great,” Barrera said.
AARP has many other events and activities celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
There’s a cooking demonstration by Chef Adam Medrano where he’ll prepare Cactus Gorditas with Shrimp and Red Sauce. AARP is also partnering with the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center for two events — a dance performance and a Latin music performance.
On Oct. 13, AARP will be hosting a Bexar County Judge Candidates Forum at 6 p.m. in the Palo Alto Performing Arts Center to inform voters about the November election.
