Saturday, May 4, Main Stage presents their “Cinco de Drinko Fiesta” starring Tucson’s own and one of Cottonwood’s favorite bands, Santa Pachita. Santa Pachita is a 9-piece band that blends a variety of musical styles to create an entertaining night of dancing for everyone.
The congas, flute, and trumpet add depth to the energetic music that is influenced by ska, cumbia, rumba-salsa, and bands like Manu Chao. You will have the most difficult time sitting through this sound explosion and not getting up to dance.
Please come help us celebrate Cinco de Mayo early with the amazing Santa Pachita and drink specials all night long. The Agenda food truck will be in the parking lot serving up delicious food for the evening too.
There is a $5 cover charge at the door and the festivities start at 9 pm. 21+
