El Festival de Mariachi 2022
Unitus Community Credit Union
Organization, Promotion, and Development of a Community Event
This event was presented by Unitus Community Credit Union at Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro on Sunday, September 25th. This will become an annual festival after bringing together more than 2,500 attendees enjoying a combination of music, gastronomy, and crafts to recognize and celebrate Hispanic culture within the framework of Hispanic Heritage Month.
"We could not be more thrilled with the success of our first ever El Festival de Mariachi," said Steven Stapp, President, and CEO at Unitus Community Credit Union. "We are overwhelmed at the support and appreciation for the event from the musicians, attendees, vendors, and community partners. People I spoke with were grateful that Unitus recognized the Hispanic community and its culture and that we created a safe space for celebration. They recognized our efforts to help unite our community and celebrate its diversity. It's just one of the reasons we say, 'there is more that unites us.'"
Izo adds to its portfolio of services an enjoyable experience with Unitus, fulfilling the event’s development, organization, and promotion; three critical phases in the success of this festival. It brought voices together to celebrate all that unites us, inspiring inclusion in our community and celebrating diversity, sharing the values of clients, focusing on their objectives as well as ours, and managing to leave an integrative footprint.
