¡Chévere! is a one of a kind festival in Los Angeles that celebrates Salvadoran culture. The first of its kind to produce an inclusive space for an intergenerational community. Attendees will enjoy networking with notable Salvie talents, live performances by musicians and performance artists, panel conversations, Salvadoran cuisine and shopping small. Some of our past guests include, Curly Velasquez from Buzzfeed, Fashion Designer Johana Hernandez, Founder of We All Grow Latina, Ana Flores, Soccer Legend, Mauricio Cienfuegos and many others.

Our goal is to bring Salvadorans of all walks of life to celebrate the beauty and positivity of our Salvadoran culture by art, films, music and networking. We hope to educate and empower the next generations of Salvadoran-Americans to take pride in their roots and showcase their talented artistic creations with us!
