Every year Casa Azul brings together more than 1,600 people of all ages and cultural background. With the support of donors, sponsors, and the community, the goal of Casa Azul is to strengthen its 3 core events and expand to other programs such as workshops, school activities, and community projects, to influence a larger audience.
Día de los Muertos
Day of the Dead
The signature event of Casa Azul. In 2015 more than 1000 people gathered from around Guilford County. Every year the community celebrates a festival of live music, folk dancing, puppet intervention, costumes, food and local art inspired by the traditional Mexican “ofrendas”.
Cultural and social evenings featuring performing and visual arts of a specific Latin American country or regions. “Night of Art and Tango” (2013) “Caribbean Night” (2014), “Art and Culture of Andean Night” (2015), are examples of how Casa Azul combines fun and culture expression together and promotes local talent.
Día de los Niños, Día de los Libros
Children’s Day, Book Day
Huge outdoor celebration! Casa Azul brings hundreds to downtown Greensboro. In collaboration with the Greensboro Public Library, Casa Azul is proud to host this highly visible event. It’s a show of outdoor readings, painting activities, live bands, dancing and fun for everyone. It´s an opportunity to come together as a community.
