The Ontario Museum of History & Art’s Culture Fest: Block Party returns on May 11 from noon to 4 p.m. The free, family-friendly event is an annual celebration of the different cultural experiences that exist within Ontario’s diverse community. This year will highlight the rich Chicanx diaspora that has called Ontario its home for generations. The festival will feature art installations, live music, a classic car show, hands-on art-making activities, food and beverages, live performances that express what it means to be Chicanx in the Inland Empire, and more. 

The full lineup includes:

  • Classic Car Show hosted by colorblindshotz, a local classic car photographer; featuring Ontario Car Club, Red Ribbon Accessories, Southern Stilo Car Club, Humildes Car Club, Hot Boyz, A&G Customs, TJ Friends Car Club, Terrones Car Club, Dukes Car Club, Down South Car Club, Get Down Classics
