Tequila Festival at the Lighthouse - San Felipe BC


Dear Sanfelipeinas,

We have not had a Tequila Festival in more than two years. Although we have had two or three promises of a festival, none of them came to pass. Honestly, I don't know why not and I am not going to start any rumors on why not! I thought this was a little drinking village with a fishing problem?

Now seems like a good time and for a good cause, with a cover charge (5dll) at the door going to Casa de Fe Orphanage.

The Lighthouse wants to bring back the Tequila Festival on Friday & Saturday, October 23th and 24th, from Noon to 11 pm, with live music from 2 pm to 11 pm on both days.

My wife and I just got back from tequila country looking for distilleries to come join us. The tequila distillers are in the same boat we are, their sales are down too. They want to know how much tequila would sell and how is it to stay here. We used the Blues Festival and the Shrimp Festival as references that we can get people here.

A two day event would give them more time to sell their wares. I think we could discount food & hotel to help get them here. I want make this a Great event for our little town, and I can't do this myself. We need everything people to help organize, sponsors for advertising, banner, posters, a lot like the blues Festival, help plan bands, activities and as we get closer we need people to man doors, security, & help set up & brake down.

Please check out our new web site www.Lighthousetequilafestival.com. Please join us in making this a successful, fun event for our community.
