ENSENADA - Mexican Christmas Art Bazaar at Bajamar

Mexican Christmas Art Bazaar at Bajamar
Saturday, Dec. 11, noon-5 p.m. (Farmer’s Market beginning at 10 a.m.)

Everyone is invited to this free, artful holiday event! On Saturday, December 11, Santa Barbara
at Bajamar and Bajamar Premier Properties are inviting the public to visit their patio office area
at Bajamar in Ensenada (kilometer 77.6 on the toll road) for an exhibition of fine art, free wine
tastings (and wine to purchase), margaritas, music featuring Augstin Sanchez, and more. The
Mexican Christmas Art Bazaar will begin at noon and go until 5 p.m. Proceeds from sales of
margaritas and beer will benefit the Baja Scholarship Foundation, a nonprofit organization that
helps send needy Mexican children to school.

The bazaar is the project of the Rosarito Art Fest consortium, a group of Baja’s top artists who,
in October, staged an art fest in Rosarito that attracted more than 5,000 people. Among those
fine artists whose work will be shown at Bajamar are Juan Angel Castillo, David Silvah, Rocio
Hoffman, Francisco Cabello, Lucille de Hoyos, Becris, Najera, Esau Andrade (one of whose
paintings is shown above), Ligia Santillan, Tonahiuh, Amy Gastelum, Daniel Franco, and Aida
Valencia. Their art will be for sale,, with a goal of raising monies to assist in establishing the Art
Fest group as a nonprofit organization.

Preceding the art fest, there will also be a craft fair and market at the Bajamar Whale Watch,
from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m., with vendors offering artisan foods like breads, tamales, and jams; jewelry
and ornaments (by artists including Martina); fabric creations; produce and more. For more
