OGDEN, Utah — Ballet Folclórico Guadalajara and Mariachi Femenil Estrella de México are bringing Mexican tradition and celebration back to Ogden. 

Presented by México en el Corazón, the free performance at Weber State University will take place at 7 p.m. June 7 in the Browning Center’s Austad Auditorium. Tickets are available online.

“Ballet Folklórico Guadalajara and Mariachi Femenil Estrella de México have found a second home here in Ogden, and Weber State is thrilled to host them again this year,” said WSU President Brad Mortensen. “México en el Corazón not only brings a beautiful performance, they bring people together in our community as we celebrate culture through song and dance.”
