August 10, 2018—Noche Cultural returns to the Eugene-Springfield area for its third year, giving local families a look into local Mexican heritage, culture and history.

The cultural night event runs 3-10 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 18, and will feature food, music, dancing and more. There will be a Charrería exhibition from 6 to 8 p.m. followed by live music and an open dance floor until 10 p.m.
