The McAllen Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate in McAllen, will present a Mexican arts and crafts celebration Jan. 7 through Jan. 11. The event will host the 6th Annual “Vibrant Heritage” Mexican Artisan Expo with 80 artisans from various States in Mexico.

This year, the event will take place in two locations starting with the McAllen International Travel Show on Jan. 7-8 at the McAllen Convention Center. The McAllen Travel Show usually draws thousands of visitors throughout the two-day event where exhibitors from all over the country promote their cities or locations as tourism destinations.

In addition, live performers from the Rio Grande Valley will entertain visitors of all ages with their music and talent. Admission is free to the public so that everyone can enjoy the rich culture and arts that are a part of the history our area shares with Mexico. The schedule for this event is as follows: Jan. 7-8 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Travel Show; Jan. 9-10, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Jan. 11, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the McAllen Creative Incubator.
