A portion of the proceeds from this year's Tacolandia event will benefit the El Pueblo Park Association.
El Pueblo Park Association (EPPA) was founded in 1982 to foster public interest in and good will for El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument (El Pueblo). We are a volunteer group dedicated to promoting the historic plaza and its historic buildings. In addition, we are devoted to expanding El Pueblo's use as an educational and cultural facility by:
• raising funds for the restoration, conservation and promotion of El Pueblo as a unique gathering place for the celebration of the historical and multicultural heritage of Los Angeles and
• sponsoring exhibitions and special events at El Pueblo.
Recently, EPPA has been involved in the Siqueiros Mural project, the Leo Politi Mural (Blessing of the Animals) repairs and upkeep, the Nativity Scene repairs and upkeep, selling memorial engraved bricks, distributing copies of "Roots of El Pueblo: The Beginning of Los Angeles," (which was made by Las Angelitas del Pueblo and the National Center for History in the Schools UCLA), becoming fiscal partner with Los Angeles Heritage Day, an annual event in El Pueblo celebrating Los Angeles history and the sponsoring of "El Pueblo: A Photographic Celebration" which was held in Pico House on La Plaza.
