PITZER COLLEGE LATINX STUDENT UNION'S 10TH ANNUAL ROCKABILLY FESTIVAL

WE ARE BACK and this year our festival is bigger and better than ever! Our 10th installment of Pitzer College's Rockabilly Festival will be held on APRIL 29TH, 2017, alongside Pitzer College's Alumni Weekend. For these reasons, we wanted to try something new. 

This year our festival hours have been extended to include a new program -- a "rockabilly afterparty" if you will -- called Latinx: Musica y Mas!

Rockabilly Festival will still include the traditional 11am-5pm festivities: car show, food trucks, arts and crafts, vendors, and of course live music! But this year, the extension of our festival will feature local DJs, and headliner musicians who will perform from a wider range of genres that encompass the diverse identities of being Latinx from 5pm-11pm! 

Get ready for 12 hours of celebrating our Latinx cultura and community!

"THE MOUNDS" [#12] is where the festival will take place on Pitzer College's campus. Public Parking can be found at the East Mesa Parking Lot [#15] Public Restrooms can be found at Holden Parking Lot [#16]
