6th ANNUAL BAJA BLUES FEST in 2017
August 18th, 19th and 20th
Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort
Our Mission and goals remain the same this year, they are:
- Provide a fund raising opportunity for local qualifying Children’s Charities in Baja California.
- Expand the cultural activities of our area to help promote Northern Baja as a safe and fun place to visit.
- We hope to continue to bring North and South Rosarito closer together to share ideas and events so Rosarito becomes a stronger self-supporting municipality.
The response to our first five festivals has been tremendous and we have raised over $55,000 for local Children’s Charities. Many people attending were from the U.S. They were all able to go home and share with family and friends what a wonderful time they had in beautiful, safe Rosarito.
Our advertising efforts stretch from Ensenada to Los Angeles and Las Vegas using radio, TV and written media. Advertising is done in both English and Spanish.
Our budget this year has is about $32,000 as we provide very talented entertainment and user-friendly staging for our bands and vendors. To reach our goal of giving 100% of ticket sales to the Children’s Charities, we are giving you the opportunity to Become a Sponsor. In addition to the satisfaction you will receive by helping the Children, you will have the opportunity to advertise to a very large group of people both locally and from the United States.
