CELEBRATE MEXICO NOW Festival is New York City’s passage to experience the vibrant and dynamic range of Mexico’s contemporary art and culture scene.

From October 14 thru October 22, 2017, CELEBRATE MEXICO NOW will showcase a wide range of events featuring literature, theater, film, culinary, and music events at major venues throughout the city.

The Festival’s multi-disciplinary nature yields a comprehensive cultural picture of the passions and concerns that make today’s Mexico so complex and fascinating. Over the past decade, the Festival has highlighted the creativity, heritage, and heart that contemporary Mexican artists bring to the arts and the creative industry. This edition, CELEBRATE MÉXICO NOW will offer New Yorkers an exclusive glimpse into how today’s Mexican artists reflect on and reshape Mexican identity in an evolving global context.

In 2017, CELEBRATE MEXICO NOW will bring emerging and established artists from Guadalajara, Mexico City, Puebla, Oaxaca and Los Angeles, to partner with cultural institutions across New York City. From The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens — we’ve got you covered…

We are overjoyed to announce that CELEBRATE MEXICO NOW is spreading beyond New York City for the first time ever! Some of Celebrate Mexico Now’s most cherished and exciting artists will perform at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and at the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.

Award-winning curator and producer Claudia Norman of CN Management, internationally recognized for her expertise in contemporary Mexican arts and culture, has assembled an eclectic and thrilling palate of featured projects, including world premieres, US debuts, and cross-cultural collaborations.

Since 2004, CELEBRATE MEXICO NOW has presented nearly 300 artists at over 60 venues in New York, establishing itself as the country’s premier platform for contemporary Mexican arts and culture.

An independent festival, CELEBRATE MEXICO NOW has received several official mayoral proclamations from the City of New York, as well as special recognition by numerous Mexican institutions.

Audiences of all backgrounds are invited to join us.
