Description

Flamenco Fever presents Paella y Pasion on Sunday, June 6 featuring live dance and music performances by local studios and fresh paella prepared on the spot by local chefs. For four years the crowd-pleasing opening event of the annual Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival has been held in the fall. Now, it has been moved to spring as a stand-alone event to build new audiences, create flamenco momentum, and raise much needed funds for the Oak Cliff Flamenco Festival 2021 in early September.

Paella y Pasion is also the finale of the sixth annual Flamenco de Mayo series that provides low-cost performances for festivals, restaurants, and schools that want to celebrate Hispanic culture near the Cinco de Mayo Holiday.

This event is outdoors and will feature hand sanitizing stations and social distancing signage to encourage a safe environment. Held at TyPo Park, northeast corner of Tyler and Polk behind Tiny Victories. Participating studios and guest artists to be announced.

Paella is a classic Spanish rice dish made with rice, saffron, vegetables, chicken, and seafood cooked and served in one pan. Bowls of paella will be available for $20 and come paired with a silk flower, polka dot scarf or fan to help patrons get in the flamenco mood. Audience members are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for this picnic style event. The stage area is free to enter. For those who do not plan to enjoy the cooking demonstration, they can still enjoy the performance. A donation is requested.
