In 2015, Mayor Joel Fajardo and the City Council of San Fernando established Indigenous Peoples Day in place of Columbus Day, which made the City of San Fernando the first city in Los Angeles County to right this historical wrong.
Indigenous Peoples Day celebrates the sovereignty, resilience, cultures, and unique contributions of Indigenous peoples. The festival will host an array of performances by diverse Indigenous backgrounds, food, arts & crafts vendors, educational booths, drum circles, and more!
