SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (Sept. 29, 2011) – Festival Cardenas is ready to rock the DiscoverIE FanZone at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 2, offering a full day of fun, food and entertainment for the entire family.
Headlining this year’s festival is three-time Grammy Award and two-time Latin Grammy Award winner Pepe Aguilar. Aguilar was raised by theatrical parents in Mexico and followed in the family footsteps – making his singing debut at the age of 3 at Madison Square Gardens in New York City. The “Super Star of Latin Music” is loved by fans all over the world who are drawn to his unique blend of mariachi and pop music. Aguilar’s 2010 album Bicentenario is nominated for the 2011 Best Ranchero Album Latin Grammy of the Year.
In addition to Aguilar, many spectacular entertainers will be on hand to perform in front of the tens of thousands of fans. Gates open at 9 a.m. and the party doesn’t stop until 5 p.m.
The stage isn’t the only thing worth checking out in the DiscoverIE FanZone. Attendees will have an opportunity to take part in FREE health screenings, voter registration, mini soccer games and much more!
If food is what you are after, there will be plenty of it. Cardenas Markets will be cooking up authentic Mexican food along with “the largest burrito” in the Inland Empire. The monster burrito will be 14 inches wide and 1000 feet long…and the food doesn’t stop there. Just when you thought you couldn’t eat another bite – a cake big enough to feed 30,000 people will be available to soothe the sweet tooth.
Along with providing quality food and entertainment, Cardenas Markets are dedicated to giving back to the community. Thanks to their partners, local residents in need will be able to take part in a FREE food giveaway at the festival.
