Grupo Cultural Oaxaqueño accompanied by Banda Gozona Quartet
A celebration of Oaxacan music, dance, and culture. ¡VIVA OAXACA! is our first performance in nearly three years and we are honored to have you join us. We are dedicated to promoting the rich cultural traditions of Oaxaca, Mexico in Seattle, and to passing on the music, dance, language, and values to young people of Oaxacan descent while sharing these with a broader community. Come share with us the beauty of our immigrant culture.
Performers are members of Banda Gozona quartet and 30 or so dancers of all-ages from Grupo Cultural Oaxaqueño.

Artists At the Center is a multi-year collaboration between Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and Seattle Center, with support from Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition and the communities adjacent to Seattle Center campus. The project is made possible by a 10-year grant from Climate Pledge Arena and Seattle Kraken.
Join us as we introduce emerging and established artists and celebrate their talent on a newly revitalized Seattle Center campus. Artists are given a performance opportunity, allowing them to connect with new audiences, display their talents and advance their careers. Visitors to campus and the surrounding neighborhood benefit from surprising and delightful pop-up performances throughout the year. Each year, artists are selected with an equity and social justice lens, ensuring equitable representation for underserved and emerging artists. Artistic genres include music, dance, theater, cultural demonstrations, and multi-disciplinary work.
