Todos Santos Art Festival

Festival Description

The Todos Santos Art Festival is as much about Mexican culture and performing arts as it is aboutpaintings, drawings and sculptures. Funded primarily by the government, the Art Festival brings folkdancing, music and theatre performance to Todos Santos. Guest speakers come to host conferences(including video) concerned with turtle conservation, fragile environments, fighting drug addiction anddomestic violence, family relations, poetry appreciation, and Baja history. There are workshops teachinglatin music and folk dancing. There are recitals featuring piano and poetry. Not your average art festival. Typically, the festival is held at the end of January or the beginning of February. All week long in the "Profesor Néstor Agúndez" Cultural Center, there is an art and drawing and regional crafts exhibition. Mexican folk dancing is featured opening weekend in the afternoons and in the evenings there is usually a music or dance show in the plaza.
