The Arizona Diamondbacks will host two Los D-backs Fiesta de la Familia events, presented by Fry's Food Stores, for fans on April 12 and 26 at Chase Field. Los D-backs Fiesta de la Familia is free and will provide fans with the opportunity to enjoy multicultural pregame entertainment.
"With the success of Hispanic Heritage Day the past 17 years, we want to provide a similar experience at Chase Field throughout the entire season," said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. "The D-backs are proud of our diverse fan base and we are excited to celebrate the many cultures of those who live in the Valley."
Los D-backs Fiesta de la Familia will begin at 11:00 a.m. on April 12 and 26 along the Gila River Casinos Plaza and will consist of a street festival atmosphere, including food trucks, live music and local entertainment provided by the D-backs, Fry's Food Stores, Little Debbie and WingStop.
The announcement comes on the heels of the recent news that the D-backs will play a Spring Training game at Estadio Sonora in Hermosillo, Mexico against the Rockies on March 29. The D-backs have a long-standing history in Hermosillo, having played exhibition games there on nine different occasions (1998-2003, '08-10). The D-backs have hosted Mexican League teams three times at Chase Field and the World Baseball Classic twice (2006 & 2013).
