Chicano Park is a world-famous public art museum featuring murals by celebrated Chican@ artists of the last four decades. Located in the heart of San Diego's historic Barrio Logan, Chicano Park is a living testament to the power of community activism and self-determination. Here is a slideshow from the 36th Annual Chicano Park Day, which took place on Saturday, April 22, 2006.

Established by Chicano activists on April 22, 1970, Chicano Park has received national and international acclaim as a major outdoor public art site known for its powerful mural paintings depicting the past and present struggle of Mexican and Chicano history.

Organized by the Chicano Park Steering Committee, the annual Chicano Park Day is a free family festival that celebrates the vibrancy of Chicano culture and a community that continues to serve as a model and inspiration for people everywhere.

The 37th Chicano Park Day will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2007 and features events for the whole family, including tasty food booths, great merchandise vendors, traditional music and dance, and an extraordinary performance of indigenous Aztec danza.

Contemporary music will be performed by several local and regional artists, including Acteal, Quinto Sol, Los Romanticos, Peace x Piece, Ledesma Brothers, Koryn Cuevas and Dr. Strangelove & The Atomic Cowboys.

Also featured will be poetry readings and guest speakers, including a keynote address by human rights activist Enrique Morones of Border Angels. In addition, there will be a classic low rider car display presented by Amigos Car Club, food, arts and craft vendors, and children's arts and craft workshops led by noted Chicano artist/muralist Victor Ochoa.
