“Rafael Oscal with the Hispanic American Chamber of Commerce reached out to the Cathedral City Chamber of Commerce with the idea earlier this year, and then they connected with me about doing a Special Use Permit for Downtown,” Hunt told Uken Report. “The City Council approved the event on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, which is set to feature folklorico performances, live entertainment and cultural cuisine/presentations representing Mexico, Central & South America.”

While this is managed and operated by a third-party, the city is a proud sponsor and has been assisting with marketing efforts leading up to the festival, Hunt said. Maya La Feria International De Cultura projects a strong local and regional audience and represents another local event dedicated to celebrating the culture and history of Latino countries/heritage.
