Myriad camps, conferences, workshops, festivals, and a multitude of associations promote mariachi music. Some of the major conferences are held in San Antonio, Tucson, Albuquerque, Las Cruces, San Jose, and Guadalajara (Mexico's Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi).

Mariachi is taught at UCLA at the Institute of Ethnomusicology and is the center of mariachi graduate studies in the United States.

The genre of mariachi has now evolved from local musicians playing in small Mexican villages to professional artists appearing in concert halls, sports arenas, and performance stages throughout the world, including the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
