The Fiestas Patrias Mexicanas of Bryan / College Station is a non-profit organization founded in the early 1990's by Emilio Lopez, Sr., and Roy Lopez. Each year, for over 25 years, we organize a cultural celebration parade, which brings an estimated 10,000 people to the Historical Downtown Bryan District, in Bryan, Texas. We take pride in awarding scholarships to high school students entering higher education, adults continuing higher education, and educators continuing higher education in a Master's program. As members of the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley, we strive to build unity in our community by celebrating culture and the arts.
Our vision is to have a world that values all cultures, education, and the arts.
Our mission is to promote education through scholarships for higher education, and instill the beauty of the Mexican culture, with its rich traditions, through the collaboration of culture and the arts.
