La Peña 40th Anniversary Party: Puerto Rican Dance & Afro-Cuban Drums | Berkeley
La Peña Cultural Center celebrates 43 years of art and activism in the Bay and beyond throughout the month of June with a variety of programming representing the many communities that make La Peña the East Bay’s beacon of intersectional Latinx culture and beyond.
“La Pena” means gathering place, where artists of all disciplines could come together to share company, food, and music in order to preserve cultural forms and create new ones.
