Now in its ninth year
, Una Noche en La Gloria is a vibrant celebration of Westside makers and doers, movers and shakers, creatives and entrepreneurs. The event
, which sprawls across the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center’s campus, Plaza Guadalupe and beyond, is a perennial must for local lovers of visual art, fashion, music, poetry, dance and performance.
Spearheaded by Gabriel Quintero Velasquez, presented by the Contemporary Art and Literature Organization (CALO) and sponsored by the Avenida Guadalupe Association, the whole shebang
is designed to inject a shot of energy, visibility, and (hopefully) cash flow into the area surrounding the festival.
Highlights from this year’s festival include musical performances from Femina-X, Al Gomez and Machete Conspiracy, The Indigenauts and Los Flamencos de San Antonio, an “Auto-Arte” car show, a circus in Plaza Guadalupe and the perennial fan favorite Runway en la Calle
— an alternative fashion show set to turn the street into a stage for presentations by designers Vanessa Morales, Jennifer Rosario Monrreal, Petricia Falcon, Angelin De Carlo and Agosto Cuellar.
