Organized by El Centro Chicano, the first Festival de Flor y Canto (Festival of flower and song), a three day literary festival
that brought together dozens of Chicano novelists, poets, and short story writers on November 16-18, 1973 (Town and Gown at
the University of Southern California), inspired subsequent events including the 2nd festival in Austin, Texas (Festival Floricanto
II), the 3rd in San Antonio, Texas, the 4th in Albuquerque, New Mexico (Flor y Canto IV, 1977), and the 5th in Tempe, Arizona
(Flor y Canto V, 1978). Three additional events under the name "Canto al Pueblo" took place later in Wisconsin, south Texas
