Related News/Archive

This year's Chasco Fiesta will include a new event: a walk to raise money to fight hunger.

The Chasco Fiesta Hunger Walk at Gulf High School will raise funds for the Pack A Sack 4 Kids and Pasco County Elderly Nutrition Programs.

The 2014 Chasco Fiesta kicks off with the Coronation Ball on March 21. Community favorites such as the Native American Pow Wow, street parade, boat parade, car, truck and bike show, flea market, golf, softball and bowling tournaments are all returning, plus nightly musical entertainment.

"We are very excited with how Chasco Fiesta is coming together and how each year we are able to partner with so many local nonprofit organizations to help support our community", said chairman Cami Austin.

At the 2013 Fiesta, nonprofits partnering with Chasco Fiesta collectively raised $245,000 for their organizations, organizers said.
