On Friday, December 8, the School of Arts and Culture at MHP (SOAC) invites its neighbors to a joyous end-of-the-year celebration, Fiesta Navideña. The night will include a free concert featuring the headliner band Tres Souls. La Plaza’s Christmas-themed festival is a cherished local tradition where friends, families, and neighbors come together to celebrate the holiday season.

Capture cherished memories and picturesque moments during your visit to our scenic garden, infusing the night with some delightful holiday spirit. In addition to capturing these exciting picture-perfect moments, Mariachi Azteca is ready to deliver an evening of live music, creating the perfect atmosphere for the entire family to celebrate the holiday season with traditional mariachi music.

At this year’s Fiesta Navideña, guests can indulge in Mexican-inspired cuisine and explore an artisanal vendor market. In addition, they will also enjoy performances by Teatro Alebrijes and the folkloric dance group Los Lupeños de San José. Wrap up the year by creating new memories with the entire family!

Located in the heart of East San José, SOAC avidly celebrates its role as the centerpiece of an emerging cultural district.
