    Please join Las Adelitas Arizona on December 5th, for our 4th Annual Posada event! Posadas are a traditional Mexican Christmas celebrations that has its origins in the commemoration of the journey to seek shelter by Mary and Joseph on Christmas Eve. Posadas have become an essential part of Mexican festivities that welcome all cultures and backgrounds.

    A traditional posada consist of a procession where a group of people goes house by house singing and symbolically looking for shelter until they find a house that grants them shelter. Once they find the final house, there is a celebration. This traditional procession is still celebrated in many parts of Mexico, but posadas have become more and more a social gathering and a celebration of family and friends where there is food, music, piñatas and beverages.

     Las Adelitas Arizona would like to invite you to celebrate our Mexican traditions, family, friends and supporters of education of Latinas in Tucson. This family-friendly event will be filled with music, dancing, food, and beverages for all to enjoy. We will also have a silent auction with local art items and much more!

     All donations will directly support serving and maintaining scholarships for Latina students attending, or planning to attend, the University of Arizona or Pima Community College. Become part of our supporting team and buy a ticket….or two
