We are proud to announce the sponsors for the 27th Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza (MVE) taking place in person December 2-4 in San Antonio. Thanks to Cano Health who is the title sponsor, H-E-B who is a returning sponsor and KHS America who is a new sponsor for this year’s MVE27.
Let us share with you a bit about these companies who are investing in our youth through one of the most important mariachi music festivals in the world.

H-E-B is back on board as a presenting sponsor for this year’s MVE and is a big and long-time supporter of quality Latino cultural arts programming in San Antonio. H-E-B has been an annual sponsor of the Serenata para las Madres at the Empire Theater with Steeven Sandoval for many years and has sponsored the MVE for 4 consecutive years. H-E-B is one of the largest private employers in Texas and our number one place for grocery shopping!
We also want to introduce KHS America who joins us as a supporting sponsor for this year’s MVE. KHS America is based in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee (a suburb of Nashville) and is an umbrella company for a family of music brands that manufacture and distribute multiple products. Brands include Jupiter known for its quality band instruments, Hercules known for its suburb stands, H. Jimenez Latin Instruments which offers guitars, guitarrons, vihuelas, requintos and violins and XO which provides professional brass instruments! Learn more about KHS America Academic Alliance and how this company is all about creating strong relationships with schools!
Companies like Cano Health, H-E-B and KHS America contribute to the growth and preservation of Mexican and Mexican American folklore through sponsorship of the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza. The support from these companies is powerful as it not only helps shape the cultural landscape of our communities, but also helps us grow in ways that will open doors for Hispanic youth in entertainment while continue to support mariachi music education.
Lastly, thanks to Whataburger for providing additional scholarships and to TPR (Texas Public Radio) for offering the best quality on-air programming and for joining MVE27 as our media sponsor. We appreciate the enthusiasm in helping to broaden the reach throughout Texas and sharing the news about the phenomenal talent that convenes in San Antonio each year for the longest running mariachi music festival in the state!
With support from Cano Health, H-E-B, KHS America and Whataburger, the largest disbursement of scholarships and grants will be awarded this year to winners of the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza’s National Vocal Competition and Original Songwriting Competition. Sponsorships from these companies contribute to enhancing the experience and impacting the lives for all participants!
