Don't miss the Mariachi Festival at Patagonia Lake State Park

If you are a fan of Cinco de Mayo and mariachi music--even if you are not a Latino--Patagonia Lake State Park is the place to be. But you don't have to choose between Cinco de Mayo events, since the Mariachi Festival at the lake is on May 18th.

Tough the park itself, with it's picturesque lake and excellent bird watching, is enough to schedule a visit, you
can spice up your Spring with Patagonia Lake SP's Annual Mariachi Festival. Enjoy a wide variety of Southern Arizona Mariachi bands live and on stage.

Featuring authentic Mexican food, you can also enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, kettle corn & shaved ice! Visitors may also bring their own picnic basket and there will be a Piñata for the kids! Don’t forget to bring: Plenty of water, lawn chair, sunscreen, and your party hat.

 In addition, Patagonia offers fishing, birding, boat tours, and nature walks. Entrance Station Opens at 7 am. $15 Per Vehicle (up to four adults). Download Event Flier (319 KB PDF).
