Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. 75% of the attendance will participate in at least two of the Fiesta's main artistic events.Audience questionnaire, participant questionnaire, artist questionnaire, and audience numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had new performers this year and they were welcomed with a larger audience and well received. The performers, specifically the lead male gave a true and accurate Cinco de Mayo meaning that put into perspective what Mexican culture is all about.
