Every March for the last four years, Boca de Oro Festival has brought thousands of artists, students, educators, and attendees to Downtown Santa Ana. They fill the streets with dancing, historic buildings with striking performances and evocative readings, and restaurants and plazas with friends new and old thanks to an incredible partnership between Santa Ana Unified School District and the Downtown Santa Ana Historic District.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Boca de Oro Festival of Literary, Visual and Performing Arts is online this year with 100+ free performances and virtual sessions.
Revelers of culture and enthusiasts of the arts will enjoy this year's open exploration of how we build our cities and lives through our collective memories, dreams and visions.

Opening Night begins an exploration of these topics with 40+ local and regional voices in mediums of expression across the arts from writing to puppetry, and dance to author and artist talks.

Day 2 features Keynote Pete Souza, a principle White House Photographer under President Obama and President Reagan. He will open the conversation with his "Eyewitness to History" observations on who we are as a country.
Souza is the subject of the hit Netflix documentary, "The Way I Saw It" and his national voice will anchor the importance and timeliness of our community's discussion.

The festival will conclude on Sunday with "The Arc of Systemic Solidarity," a vision put forth by prophetic Haitian-American poet, Marc Bamuthi Joseph.
The artist, citizen philosopher, educator, and Vice President of Social Impact at the Kennedy Center will articulate how we collectively design a future of "inspiration for us all."
