Each February, visitors looking for the ultimate cultural experience in beautiful Baja, Mexico, flock to the annual Todos Santos Art Festival (Festival del Arte de Todos Santos). This festive, week-long celebration of everything creative combines the best local and national Mexican traditions with vibrant arts, music and theater performances. Enjoy live music from local and national musicians and performance groups.
Watch an array of classical and modern dance and theater performances. Attend interesting lectures covering topics like local environmental and social issues. Wander through an art exhibition displaying original paintings, sculpture, jewelry, and drawings created at more than 40 artist studios by skilled artisans from around the country.
You can also shop for Mexican and international gifts and a selection of beautiful arts at the crafts fair, where you can pick up handmade rugs and leather goods. Getting hungry? Food and drink vendors serve up delicious local fare, like banana leaf-wrapped tamales and traditional Mexican elote (corn on the cob).
The Todos Santos Art Festival runs from February 21st - 28th, 2017 in downtown Todos Santos. Visit http://www.eventsloscabos.com/organizer/todos-santos-art-festival/ for event details.
