Migrant Welcoming Festival

The Migrant Welcoming Festival is celebrated to honor all of our migrant families who have for years been faithful devotees to Our Lady of San Juan del Valle.The Basilica celebrates a special Mass every year in mid April to bless all the families who travel up north to work in the fields. On their safe return they come to the Basilica to pay tribute to Our Lady of San Juan del Valle. As a token of gratitude for their devotion, the Basilica started to celebrate and honor families since the year 2007. This Festival is full of entertainment, food and organizations that provide social services among migrant communities.
