San Luis Founders Day Backyard Carne Asada Celebration

Founders Day 2020

San Luis, Arizona — The City of San Luis is bringing its Founders Day Celebration to your backyards this Friday, October 2, 2020, starting at 7:00 p.m. 

This year's Founders Day celebration will bring musical performances from Ritmo Latino, Norteño Plaza Nueva, and Banda Acelerada, all from the safety of your backyard! Our Founders Day Celebration will be streamed on the City's official Facebook page (@SanLuisAZGov). 

To participate in the Founders Day Photo contest, participants are asked to send us an image of their backyard carne asada celebration alongside their name and phone number to the Official City of San Luis, Arizona Facebook page! All entries must be received by Monday, October 5, 2020. Winners will be announced on Thursday, October 8, 2020.

“Continuing your safety as a top priority, we are excited to celebrate the City of San Luis Founders Day with you,” stated Mayor Gerardo Sanchez. “I hope you are ready for the musical performances, don’t forget to send your images over on how you and your families celebrate Founders Day,” he encouraged.

The San Luis Founders Day commemorates the 41 years since the city incorporated. The City of San Luis was founded back in 1930 after the opening of the San Luis Port of Entry I. On September 4, 1979, the Yuma County Board of Supervisors formally incorporated the City of San Luis as an official town. Today, the City of San Luis is home to more than 33,000 residents, with our population rapidly growing.
