The Ultimate Guide to Los Cabos Most Exclusive Events!
Baja is a simple word that evocates so many wonderful things that is hard to keep track of them all. It’s a natural paradise where the ocean meets desert. It’s an oasis for golf and fishing lovers. It’s also a place where art, culture, and gastronomy have grown exponentially in the last couple of decades, making it quite an eclectic destination where there is something for everyone. Here you have our own guide to Baja’s Most Exclusive Yearly Events:
Los Cabos International Film Festival
Going this year for its 7th Edition, Los Cabos International Film Festival is one of the main cultural events in the region every year. Created with the goal of contributing to the growth of global film culture, it has dedicated itself to explore and promote bold, independent cinematographic proposals in order to spark reflection and healthy debate. The Festival has become a magnet for celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, who puts Baja in the international spotlight.
Cheese & Wine Festival
The Cheese & Wine Festival is one of the most popular events in the culinary scene of Cabo. It’s a celebration of cheese in all its diversity and a feast for wine lovers who gather to enjoy and discover the most audacious Mexican wines coming from all over the Baja Peninsula. Organized by Los Cabos Children’s Foundation, the event serves as a charity fundraiser in order to support the work of the organization in the region.
San Jose Jazz Weekend
In February 2018 the San Jose Jazz Weekend saw its 6th Edition and it was a huge success. It takes place every year at Plaza del Pescador in San Jose del Cabo and features an interesting mix of local, national and international artists that have put jazz at the center of their careers. A family-friendly event, with great vibes, excellent food, and the best music in the peninsula.
Sabor a Cabo
Sabor a Cabo is an International Food & Wine Festival with 12 years of history and a reputation as one of the largest gastronomy events in the whole Baja Peninsula. Serving over 3,000 people year after year and boasting the presence of distinguished international Chefs such as Dieter Koschina (Michelin Star Chef), Richard Sandoval and Enrique Olvera, Sabor a Cabo is definitely a must during the month of December in the region.
San Jose del Cabo Art Walk
One of the most popular events among art lovers. It actually is not an event but a weekly celebration of art during high season (November to June). Every Thursday, the Gallery District of San Jose del Cabo becomes an open-air, street-wide fiesta, where visitors walk from gallery to gallery while enjoying complimentary cocktails and live music. During the winter, there is no better way to spend a Thursday evening than at the Art Walk. Art walks take place every Thursday evening between November and April, luring visitors from all walks of life to stroll down to the San Jose del Cabo Art District before heading to one of the finest restaurants in town. Far from big city art fairs, in San Jose del Cabo´s art walks you will meet with the creators of your favorite paintings while you sip a glass of bubbly on the house.
You will find plenty of inspiration to decorate your home amidst the hand-crafted accessories and forged steel pieces on display at Casa Don Pablo and the variety of works in bronze, resin, oil and mixed media collage that will tease your eyes at Casa Dahlia. Are you looking for the perfect home-warming gift or want to surprise your friends back home with some Naïve Folk art? Or perhaps you are in search of the finest quality artwork for your luxury villa in Los Cabos Golden Corridor? There are over a dozen galleries offering the best works of Mexican and international artists to find what you wish for and whet your appetite for more. On a different note, Muvezi Gallery brings the finest African sculptures to Pacific shores and donates 20% of their earnings to beat malaria, providing you with the chance of practicing the art of charity together with your love for art. Worth noting down in your agenda, the weekly Artwalks in San Jose del Cabo are the perfect excuse to enjoy a glass of Cabernet in an elegant environment. While mingling with the guests, watch out for big celebrities trying to hide behind their oversized shades, you never know who might go shopping for art in Los Cabos!
There you have, Cabo is a buzzing place with lots of things to do and outstanding events year after year. This list didn’t aim to be an exhaustive one, as we tried to cover the most representative events of the region. However, other events like GastroVino Baja Food & Wine Festival, Todos Santos Music & Art Festival, The Open of Los Cabos, Los Cabos Mercedes Golf Tournament, Los Cabos Open of Surf, also deserve an honorable mention and prove the point that in Baja there is never a boring day!
