Cesar Chavez Celebration

The Cross Cultural and Gender Center celebrates the life and contributions of Cesar Chavez every year on his birthday (March). This is a large celebration held at the Peace Garden at Fresno State. There is always music, performances, and keynote speeches. This event is closed by garlanding the statue of Cesar Chavez and allowing all participants to place flowers at the base of the statue.
