Get into the holiday spirit a la mexicana. Join us for our annual presentation of Posadas, a holiday celebration promoting the popular traditions of the Mexican community of New York, featuring, traditional music and workshops. The event culminates in a party with the breaking of candy-filled piñatas.
POSADAS are popular Mexican celebrations dating back to the colonial period. Posada -- literally meaning ‘lodging’-- commemorates the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Traditionally, these festivities take place in private homes over nine nights, culminating with the most important Posada on Christmas Eve.
