Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of music. It is she whom the Mexican troubadour cites as the source of inspiration. To pay her due honor, the most active mariachi crews in the New York City have brought this tradition to New York and they gather each November for a marathon of musical display at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

The evening will begin in the Basilica with a Catholic service, the mariachis providing the music. Separate ensembles fused into one. At the conclusion of service the congregation will adjourn to the auditorium for a mariachi concert and fiesta.

While the Festival of Saint Cecilia is the celebration of the work and joy of playing music, everyone is welcome to this annual event. The Festival of Saint Cecilia is held annually, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The address is the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 60th Street at Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. The Mass that begins the Festival of Saint Cecilia will be around 6:00 PM.
