Festival de Artes at Hotel Palmas de Cortez

We have hit the 1/4 century mark, and are happily looking forward to the next 25 yers, starting with the 2019 Festival March 17, 2019 10am - 4pm - Yes, St. Patrick's Day!!


The  festival has started the beginning of the next 25 years being known as the premier showcase for Baja Sur artists to display and sell their original art and designs. 

Exciting additions will be coming for the 2019 festival- watch for them on this site!  Browse through the rows of around 100 vendors with original art mediums such as oil, acrylic, water color, fabric, pottery, wood and glass. Enjoy the creations of other artists with fabric, flowers, silver, gold and precious stones in designs like no other. We are going back to our roots with more original art, different mediums and more quality.  We strive to ensure that our artists design and create their original works so that you know you are getting an original hand crafted piece directly from artist to you!

 The smells coming from the Food Court will tantalize you with the delicious food with a new emphasis on up scaling and increasing the variety of our food court.   The ice will be crackling with all your favorite cold beverages from our bar that is second to none!

While you are taking a break with your food and cold drink, you will be entertained with traditional folkloric Mexican dancing from the Elementary, Secondary and High Schools here in Los Barriles. We will also be honored to have the folkloric dancers from La Paz Cultural Ministry coming to entertain us with traditional Mexican dancing. The entertainment will be every hour starting at 10:30.
