La Peña turns 42 in June! We will be celebrating all month long with a variety of programming representing the many communities that make La Peña the East Bay’s beacon of intersectional Latinx culture and beyond!
Save the date for Saturday, June 24 for our official birthday party, featuring the “cumbiacentric” rythms of Pasto Seco Band and a special set by Monreal Latin Jazz lead by jazz guitarist Sebastian Monreal – who will be performing new versions of some Victor Jara songs in honor of La Peña’s 42 years!
