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.

Our Programs

Casa de Mexico impacts thousands of Central Florida residents through our annual events. Each September, to celebrate Mexico’s Independence, we present a gala event considered one of the best in Orlando. Orlando has established a Cinco de Mayo tradition presided over by Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Consul of Mexico, Mr. Juan Sabines. The community is welcomed to this annual event, held at Orlando City Hall.
