COCAcabana is BACK AT COCA this year
and we’re celebrating our homecoming with a completely new and unique experience:
Channeling the creativity, artistry, fashion, self-expression and community-building of your favorite music festival, COCAchella is going to be a dynamic, unforgettable party that you don’t want to miss.

COCAcabana is COCA’s only major annual fundraiser and is vital to COCA’s mission to enrich lives and build community through the arts. Started in 1988, COCAcabana sustains COCA’s outreach programs, which provides arts programming at no cost in low-income schools and offer scholarships for students to participate in COCA programs. In 2019, COCAcabana successfully raised more than $800,000 for COCA’s arts education programming. Accounting for nearly 20 percent of COCA’s annual contributed revenue, COCAcabana is crucial to continuing this outreach.
