In Mexico, lucha libre (free wrestling) rivals soccer in attendance, and boasts a 75-year history of imaginative, family-friendly entertainment. The tradition of wearing masks dates back to the Aztecs and the designs are meant to evoke the power of animals, gods and other ancient heroes.

LUCHADORAS 2 will bring the well-loved Mexican tradition to Durham with a slight twist – only female wrestlers will be permitted to compete. The 3-hour daytime spectacle will feature numerous one-on-one matches and a tag team bout.

Additionally, patrons will have an opportunity to consume authentic Mexican street fare from famed area taco truck Captain Ponchos Tacos, drink some "Los Luchadores" coffee from Counter Culture prepared by bikeCOFFEE and to meet and greet their favorite Luchadoras after the event.

The event will benefit the NC DREAM Team, an organization composed of undocumented immigrant youth and allies dedicated to the creation of a sustainable, community-led immigrant rights movement in North Carolina. Masks/costumes provided by Fanatic Masks and The Scrap Exchange.

Motorco Music Hall, 723 Rigsbee Ave.
Saturday, January 21, 12-3pm
$5 (free for children under 12 years of age)
