About the Event

The Boca de Oro Festival, situated in Santa Ana, California, is an annual celebration of literary arts and culture that brings together a diverse community of writers, poets, and artists. Originating as a collaborative effort between the Santa Ana Unified School District, the City of Santa Ana, local businesses, and cultural institutions, this festival shines a spotlight on the thriving arts and culture scene in Santa Ana. Held on the first Saturday of March, Boca de Oro has grown into a major cultural event, drawing thousands of visitors each year. It serves as the launch for Arts In Education Month during March and transitions into the monthly Santa Ana Artwalk, where local galleries and artisans continue to share their creative works. The festival offers a rich tapestry of activities including workshops, readings, panels, performances, book fairs, and art exhibitions. The festival's name, "Boca de Oro" or "mouth of gold" in Spanish, symbolizes the wealth and diversity of artistic expression among the local creative community.
