On Sunday, St. John’s Catholic Church and the Healdsburg Museum are hosting a special $5 Lunch + Music event from 1:30 to 3 p.m. or maybe a bit later at St. John Catholic Church’s Gym (208 Matheson St., Healdsburg).
The fete, Immigrant Fiseta, celebrates the museums current exhibit, “Healdsburg Immigrants.” Beer and wine will be available for $1.
The box lunch features tamales prepared by El Farolito, along with Asian salad from Persimmon, the not-yet-open restaurant that will soon replace the Charcuterie on Healdsburg Ave. Baci is contributing a Persian salad with chicken and vegetables and the Italian Catholic Federation has been whipping up biscotti. There will also be chocolate chip cookies from Costeaux.
For music, it’s one of the world’s most celebratory genres, Mariachi! The band is Mariachi Barragon, which includes 11 members, many from the same family. Joining in is a fabulous 14-year-old vocalist, Valeria Gomez, said to sing in the style of Linda Ronstadt and Selena.
You can snag tickets Saturday and Sunday at the Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society and by calling Jeanne at 431-3325 or 473-9656. Adult tickets are just $5; kids 12 and under pay $2.
