On Saturday, September 28, Central Library downtown will host a day of Lucha Libre. Individuals of all ages are invited for this bi-cultural event that will introduce them to the unique genre of Mexican wrestling, which is characterized by the colorful masks and high-flying maneuvers of the wrestlers, or “luchadores.”
What to expect:
10:00 am – 3:00 pm – The family-friendly event at the Library will begin with games, activities, art exhibit, a community market with local artists and vendors, and mp3jing from El Camaron Electronico.
11:00 am – Three Lucha Libre matches will take place in an 18’ x 18’ ring set up in the middle of Central Library’s Atrium.
2:00 pm – Photo opportunities with wrestlers.
3:00 pm – An artists’ talk on cultural significance of Lucha Libre.
4:00 pm – A free screening of the PBS documentary film, “Tales of Masked Men – A Journey Through Lucha Libre,” in Central Library’s Clowes Auditorium.

Free bus service to downtown on the Red Line has stops within two blocks of the Library. The Central Library parking garage will be inaccessible until early afternoon.
