Festival de Artes at Hotel Palmas de Cortez

Celebrating the 25th Annual Festival de Artes! March 18, 2018 10am - 4pm

The 25th Anniversary festival has been 25 years in the making and is known as the premier showcase for Baja Sur artists to display and sell their original art and designs. 

Browse through the rows of over 110 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 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 famous Palmas Carne Asada Taco Stand, hamburgers and pizza from San Antiono Gourmet Burgers, Sausage Girls out of La Paz, Carments Cafe and more.   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.
