Las Cafeteras will headline Route 66 Summerfest, a free family event weekend that offers multiple stages of local bands. This tradition takes over a mile-long stretch of Central Ave. from 5 to 10 pm on Saturday, July 23, featuring food trucks, free activities for kids and more. Las Cafeteras use music as a vehicle to build bridges among different cultures and communities.  

This national touring band has taken the music scene by storm with their infectious live performances crossing genres and musical borders. Their electric sound and energy have taken them around the world playing shows from Bonnaroo to the Hollywood Bowl, WOMAD New Zealand to Montreal Jazz, and beyond. Las Cafeteras sing in English, Spanish and Spanglish and add a remix of sounds, from rock to hip-hop to rancheras. Pets are welcome on leashes. This is a rain or shine event.
