Dozens of vendors serving up delicious Mexican food and other tasty treats, business and craft booths where you can grab all your festive attire, our $5 Kids Corner,  ice-cold beer, and Pinata’s every hour on the hour!

AMOR PROHIBIDO – A Tribute to Selena has been hailed by fans and critics alike as one of the best SELENA tribute bands in the U.S.!

Since 2014, The Amor Prohibido Band has dominated America with more sold out shows than any other tribute Band. With sold out shows at venues such as The Music Box San Diego, and The House of Blues San Diego. AMOR PROHIBIDO brings you all your favorites, including Tecno Cumbia, Como la Flor, No Debes Jugar, and Bidi Bidi Bom Bom and more! The talent of these musicians together has brought the meaning of TRIBUTE to a whole new level.  Nira Perez, is an absolute dead ringer for Selena, both visually and vocally. She continues to stun fans with her miraculous resemblance, exact mannerisms and identical voice to Selena. Fans agree that Amor Prohibido delivers the closest experience to the original Selena.
