19-29 – San Jose del Cabo Festival Tradicional

The 8 day long San Jose del Cabo Festival, celebrated in honor of the city’s patron saint San José (St. Joseph), begins on Sunday March 19 at 6:00 p.m. and will continue every evening until Wednesday, March 29. The free admission gala event kicks off with live music, held at the plaza in the heart of downtown. Carnivals and parades will be held during the two weekends of the event, which year after year, has been a tremendously huge and popular success; always drawing a good, boisterous crowd. The various food booths situated throughout the central downtown area, will be serving up everything from fresh, warm tamales, to corn on the cob (with or without buttered, powdered chili), tacos, enchiladas, an assortment of sweets, and sugared pumpkin candies. The Festival is an annual family-oriented affair, which is one of the biggest street parties the city puts on every mid-March. The popular local event will also feature its annual rodeo that is part of the eight day celebration, which takes place at the corral, across the street from the city’s fire department on the main street from the hotel zone into town. San Jose del Cabo’s historic charm lies in the quaint, narrow streets, and colonial buildings that comprise the city’s intriguing art district; featuring exquisite ancient houses turned into pleasantly colored galleries, studios, tiny shops and really cool and scrumptious restaurants; some of them with courtyards converted to pleasant seating areas. The ”Festival Tradicional” de SJDC is an event both locals and visitors look forward to attending every year.

25 – The Todos Santos Annual 5K/10K Run

The Palapa Society of Todos Santos presents the much anticipated return of their Annual Todos Santos Carreras (Race) 5K/10K Run.

The awards ceremony at the end of both races will also take place at the Todos Santos downtown central plaza. The TS 5K/10K has been canceled the past two years, due to Hurricane Odile in 2015 and then the months-long resurfacing of the town’s streets and sidewalks (2016). The first race was held in 2009. The 5K (3.1 Mile) Race will wind through the streets of the little tiny town of Todos Santos, while the 10K follows the same route until the course turns south towards Punta Lobos on a dirt road. Volunteers will be available along the way to guide, support and help all participants. The Society of La Palapa de Todos Santos, A.C. is a Mexican nonprofit organization that offers educational opportunities for young people from Todos Santos and El Pescadero. The organization offers a wide range of programs, including English language classes for children and adults, art workshops, summer courses, environmental workshops, and scholarships for high school and university students. In August 2017, the organization will inaugurate the La Palapa Educational Center, which will include a junior high and high school endorsed by the SEP; Mexico’s governing body of education. All funds raised by their 5K/10K family event will be used in support of all current and future. Both races cost a donation of $10 USD or $ 200 Mexican Pesos. Pre-race registration will be held on Thursday and Friday March 23 -24 at Cafelix from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Early online registration is available at www.palapasociety.org.
