We are Dreaming of You Tribute BIRTHday Party and Workshop

Learn how to make sugar skulls with a mold and decorate one as you like. As a singer, songwriter, businesswoman, model, actress, fashion designer and Tejano trendsetter, “La Reina del Tex-Mex” - Selena - is one of the most celebrated Mexican-American entertainers of the 20th century.

Lizzie and Dani are partnering with Back From Tomboctou Gallery to organize an epic, fun, artistic and inspirational party to celebrate what would have been Selena’s 50th birthday in April (¡¿Puedes creerlo?! We can’t believe it either!).

Come together for fun, music, hands-on art-making, a fabulous guest speaker, games and tal vez un poco de baile...

Whether you have just discovered her inspiring story in Selena: The Series on Netflix or have been a lifelong fan of her music, this is a Selena celebration you do not want to miss!

Selena-inspired apparel and costumes encouraged!
