Hay Festival happening all weekend at Joshua Tree Retreat Center

For the second year, the Hay Festival celebrates Latinx culture in all its traditions—dance, film, food, music, theater, and community, with events happening throughout November.

The festival continues tonight (November 4) with “Caminando,” a dance work by choreographer Liliana Gomez. Presented by the Latina Dance Project, the piece focuses on themes of love and migration, and will be accompanied by live music by Marivel and Jesse Simms. The event starts tonight at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are on a sliding scale of $10 to $30.

Tomorrow (November 5) at 1 p.m., the Hay Festival will present a free screening of the new animated classic Encanto, and there will be a prize drawing. 

Also tomorrow at 3 p.m., there will be a tamalada with Ray Rodriguez. The chef will teach kids and adults to make tamales while listening to traditional music. Tickets for adults are $20 and kids are $10. Come hungry for this one.
