This annual event focuses on educating our communities about the legacy of César E. Chávez, an unselfish advocate of social justice and respect for human dignity. The César E. Chávez Birthday Celebration programming highlights the youth in our community. Building on the success of the Marcus Center’s Dr. King Birthday event, we want to engage young people through an art, essay and spoken word contest.
In addition, various cultural arts organizations take center stage in Uihlein Hall, truly demonstrating the excellence of our arts and education communities. The event will conclude with a reception in the Marcus Center’s Bradley Pavilion.
How to Participate in the Program:
The César E. Chávez. Birthday Celebration is organized by a steering committee of community members, school representatives, corporate leaders, and Marcus Center staff. This community event is free and open to the public.
There are no tickets or reservations required to attend this event. Seating in Uihlein Hall is on a first come, first serve basis.
