Bienvenidos a Casa de México

Casa de México is a nonprofit organization founded to pursue fundraising cultural activities, dedicating itself full time to Mexican cultural promotion and charitable giving.

About Us   |   At Casa de Mexico we strive to make a positive impact

In 1995, when the Consulate of Mexico opened its doors in Orlando, a greater presence of Mexico's rich traditions, culture and folklore was established in Central Florida. To honor these traditions, and support the Consulate's charitable initiatives, Casa de Mexico de la Florida Central, Inc. was created in 1997.

 

Through the years, Casa de Mexico has become known for organizing numerous annual cultural events to promote and celebrate Mexico’s vibrant presence in the Orlando community.

 

In addition to a full calendar of events, Casa de Mexico has provided strong charitable support to the area. Our primary focus is on assistance to Mexican farm workers and laborers in the area of health and education, particularly for women and children living in Central and Northern Florida.
