Blues and Arts Festival 2012

Postby Rob Hoare » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:34 am

I've been getting several enquiries at San Felipe News from out-of-towners asking when the Blues Festival will be next spring, so that they can plan their trips to San Felipe to match.

As far as I can tell, there isn't going to be a Blues and Arts Festival in 2012. I've emailed John and Rachel Pack about this, but haven't received any reply and haven't spotted them in person yet to ask.

So, does anybody know for sure it's not going to happen, or, if it is, what dates? Thanks.

I have also heard that there will not be one this year 2012. But that was not from an official person.

From the Baja Nomads board:

(via The Baja Good Life Club)

On March 24, 2012, San Felipe, Baja California will be the backdrop of the highly prestigious Blues and Arts Fiesta. This event, during which music and art become one, is made even more appealing by the Sea of Cortez, the most prominent symbol of the Baja Peninsula. San Felipe is a slow paced fishing town, but on March 24, this is undoubtedly going to change.

The fiesta was created in the same spirit as the Woodstock and Monterey Pop Festivals, and the artists who will perform are comparable to the most celebrated blues, rock `n' roll, and rock singers of the history. Apart from excellent music, the event features the best of Mexico's craftsmen who will display the finest of their works on the 60 booths available for this occasion.

The mission of Blues and Arts Fiesta is "Changing Lives Through Music and Art". As a result, the event will be a reason of joy not only for participants, but also for the deprived members of the community. All proceeds will be donated to local charities that rely on private donations to carry out their activity. Any person will automatically contribute to the cause by purchasing a ticket which costs $20 if paid in advance and $25 if purchased on location. Visit the official website of the event www.bluesandarts.com for tickets and travel information.

The location of the shows will be El Cortez Hotel, and the organizers are San Felipe BC Lions Club (www.sanfelipebclionsclub.org) and Baja Good Life Club (www.bajagoodlifeclub.com). About 150 volunteers will put a lot of effort into bringing this incredible event to the public.

San Felipe BC Lions Club operates with the sole purpose of assisting the humanitarian needs of local organizations. Their members are totally dedicated to encouraging cooperation among citizens and unconditional compassion towards the less privileged.
