Contra Costa County invites you to join us as we pay tribute to the life and legacy of farm worker and labor leader Cesar Chavez during our 23rd Annual Cesar E. Chavez Commemorative Celebration. 

Our event is free and open to the public, and will take place on Tuesday, March 29 from 11:00 am-12:00 pm., in the Board of Supervisors Chamber at 651 Pine Street in Martinez.
