Family Game NIght: Chalupa y Buenas

A Texas Folklife Community Folklife Fellowship Presentation


Location: Patrick Heath Library (451 N Main St, Boerne, TX 78006)




Have you ever wondered what the commotion is behind all the merchandise with random numbers, characters, and spanish names on cards, that everyone around seems to wear and enjoy?

-What you see printed and sold like candy are Mexican Loteria Characters.


You are invited to join 2022 Community Folklife Fellow Ayme Pena, an aspiring artist whose main goal is to promote the archiving of traditions and oral histories of the community voices by hosting the "Chalupa y Buenas" workshop. This Mexican Independence Day allow yourself to immerse into a different culture by joining the traditional Mexican Game of Chance LOTERIA. 

There will be a short presentation followed by an afternoon of Mexican Loteria fun with refreshments and prizes. Grab your “frijoles” and press your luck at this Mexican Game of Chance. 


This event is FREE and open to the public!
