26th Anniversary of Festival de Artes
Save the date for the next great event in Baja Sur as the 26th Anniversary Festival de Artes will be held at the “Hotel Palmas de Cortez” in Los Barriles, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 17, 2019. Entering their 2nd quarter century and the most extensive day time celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, this event which is sponsored by the Asociación de Artes, is known as the premier showcase for Baja Sur artists to display and sell their original art and designs.
Browse through the rows of over 80 artisans with original art mediums such as oil, acrylic, water color, fabric, pottery, wood and glass. Enjoy the creations of other artists with fabric, flowers, silver, gold and precious stones in designs like no other. We strive to ensure that our artists design and create their original works so that you know you are getting an original hand-crafted piece directly from artist to you! You will also find the vendors with the traditional Mexican items and a selection of booth with the charter fishing, horseback ride, boat excursions, SUP rentals, quads and more – the activity folks!
The smells coming from the Food Court will tantalize you with the famous Palmas Carne Asada Taco Stand, hamburgers from San Antiono Gourmet Pizza and Burgers, Sausage Girls out of La Paz and Carmens Café, to name a few. The ice will be crackling with all your favorite cold beverages from our bar that is second to none! And maybe we can even find some good green beer in honor of St. Patrick’s!!!
While you are taking a break with your food and cold drink, you will be entertained with traditional folkloric Mexican dancing from the Elementary, Secondary and High Schools here in Los Barriles and San Bartolo schools. We will also be honored to have the folkloric dancers from La Paz Cultural Ministry coming to entertain us with traditional Mexican dancing. The entertainment will be every hour starting at 10:30. We will also be treated with some soothing sounds from the talents of our own local residents. That is entertainment from 10:30 to 4pm.
We have also stepped up our game with our raffle and silent auction. You will be able to bid on a variety of packages including: fishing trips, hotel stays in Toto Santos, Los Barriles, La Paz & Cabo Pulmo, golf packages, guided tours, quad rentals, Multi-day Expeditions, whale watching, jewelry, paintings, shopping trips, dinner packages and our stuffed raffle baskets – and that is just to start. This is our largest fundraiser and we have gone out of our way to ensure that there is something that everyone will want! See a complete list of auction items on our website: www.eastcapearts.com
