Non-profit organization, Casa Circulo Cultural, is a grass-roots community-based multidisciplinary art organization dedicated to creating cultural programming reflective of the experiences of the Latino communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, while promoting leadership development for both kids and adults.
Our organization is committed to serving low-income and vulnerable families by providing social, economic, health and wellness, and cultural building blocks for the present and future well-being of every member of the family.
We offer a variety of fun, enriching, and engaging classes for kids; from music, art, theater, and dance, to martial arts, chess, literature, multimedia and more. We also offer classes for adults.
We are a Spanish immersion program and classes are mainly taught in Spanish to develop, preserve, and encourage the Latino and Hispanic language and culture.
Aside from our classes, Casa Círculo Cultural hosts, participates and partners in various community festivals and events throughout the Bay Area such as: Facebook Festival, STEAM Fest 2.0, Whiskeys of the World, and more.
In November Casa Círculo Cultural organizes and hosts the Día de los Muertos Celebration, our flagship event which attracts thousands of people into downtown Redwood City. This event has impacted underserved communities and developed into one of the City’s largest celebrations of arts, diversity, and culture.
Our mission is to provide creative, educational, and recreational opportunities for Latinx families, encourage Hispanic art, culture, language and traditions, while promoting leadership development for both kids and adults.
We believe that social change is best achieved through collaboration, community empowerment and civic engagement.
We envision Casa Circulo Cultural as a second home for all members. We want a strong, community-centered organization grounded in Hispanic culture and art. We commit to being transparent and accountable to our community, volunteers, partners, donors, allies, and supporters. We want to promote quality programs that are alive, thriving, innovative and friendly.

Commitment to society and the environment. Casa Circulo Cultural contributes to increase the value of San Mateo County and the Peninsula of San Francisco, highlighting the quality of the landscape and natural elements that surround the are and stimulating the aesthetic experience and the emotion of growing through art and culture in values such as openness, respect, tolerance, equality and diversity.
Education and Culture. Education at Casa Circulo Cultural is a priority, and that is why our educational program, for all audiences, plays a special role in our annual programming. Our activities pursue two basic objectives: to develop our own sensitivity in relation to art and to promote leadership development for both kids and adults.
Language and Respect. Casa Circulo Cultural’s Spanish immersion programs are highly important for the preservation of Hispanic Culture. We take pride in this and the fact that we instill values such as respect, honor, and proper manners. Latino families show warmth through hugs, and this extends beyond just family members but to anyone who is invited to our home: Casa Circulo Cultural.
