LOS BARRILES - 18th Annual Festival de Artes


The Asociacion de Artes del Mar de Cortez invites all artists and artisans to participate in our 18th annual Festival de Artes at beautiful Hotel Palmas de Cortez in Los Barriles on Sunday, April 3rd! To register, please contact the festival committee at festivaldeartes@hotmail.com or call (624)158-6309 English or (624)141-0380 Spanish. Due to the growing number of participants of this event and our desire to accommodate everyone's booth size requests, we are asking that all artists/artisans sign up through these contact numbers to receive confirmation of registration. It's very easy, and will help us ensure that everyone is accounted for and all booth requests are granted. Those who arrive without a reservation will of course be welcome, but booth assignment will be subject to availability at that time, so register now, check in early (between 6 - 9AM) on Festival Day, and have a great time!

More than 1,000 spectators are expected to attend this colorful and fun-filled event, which will be located on the wide-open grassy area utilizing the hotel driving range - a perfect opportunity for artists and craftsmen to exhibit their original paintings and handcrafted items. Additionally there will be live entertainment & children's programs throughout the day, delicious American and Mexican food, beverages, snacks, baked goods, raffles and more. Join us for one of the area's most popular and well attended annual events, benefiting the East Cape Arts Association in its efforts to bring the arts to local communities and schools!
