The City of Imperial Beach’s first Fiesta Del Mar is on Saturday, April 30, 2016, from 12 to 7pm. This cross border celebration between Imperial Beach and Rosarito Beach, will showcase live musical acts from both the Rosarito and San Diego areas as well as interactive family activities hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of both cities.
Pier South and Sea 180 will sponsor the band shell on the Pier where bands including Todo Mundo and Jarabe Mexicano will perform between noon and 7 pm. Festivities will kick off at noon with a performance by Mar Vista High School’s Ballet Folklorico Nahuatlan.
A goal of the celebration is to build awareness of the cultural richness of the area, as it showcases cultural artisans, folkloric musical and dance groups, and culinary offerings unique to Baja California such as:
•Artists and musicians who participate in the annual Rosarito Beach ArtFest,
•Chefs who specialize in local cuisine, including the “Father of Baja Med Cuisine” James Beard nominee, Chef Javier Plascencia , who has restaurants in both Mexico and San Diego.
•Vitners from the Valle de Guadalupe wine country
