SteelCraft Garden Grove’s Summer Culture Series has officially come to a close! THANK YOU all who attended and participated in our series. We owe these events to the support of our surrounding communities, United Way OC, the Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce and the guests who came out to show their love. We had a blast at our last event on September 18th, celebrating Hispanic/Latinx culture through traditional performances, creative makers and community speakers. Keep reading to get catch a glimpse of the fun!

Live Community Performances:

Nonprofit organization, Relámpago del Cielo Grupo Folklorico (above) dazzled with their traditional Mexican dances.

Talented mariachi group, Mariachi Folklore (above), blew us away with their impressive vocalists and instrumentalists.


High energy turntablist, DJ E-Rex (above) got our heads bobbing to his catchy selection of tunes.
