SALSA FESTIVAL OXNARD
Hot Music and Cool Latin Breezes on California Coast

Salsa Tasting Varieties at Oxnard photoIt’s strawberries in the spring but sizzling salsa in the summertime. Oxnard California is an community that’s almost 70 percent Hispanic from its agricultural base, so its natural one of California’s great parties for Salsa and Latin Jazz takes place in July as it has for the past 15 years within a an ocean’s breath from the Pacific coast. Spicy food, hot music and cool crafts shopping highlight the two day weekend in July.

Market at Salasa Festival photoThe festival takes place downtown at Plaza Park surrounded with the vendor marketplace booths offered gourmet salsas & sauces, boutique clothing, hand crafted jewelry, home décor and cultural crafts. And the Salsa dancing never stops! At the Salsa Tasting Tent dozens of different salsas are on offer, 500 gallons of it at Ventura County’s longest salsa bar – from mild to five-engine-fire-alarm from local restaurants and salsa makers. The Salsa Tasting is $4 including the chips! Bring your own recipe and win $150 at the Great Oxnard Salsa Challenge. Pre-registration is necessary, just fill out the application on the Oxnard Salsa Festival website.

Aside from the salsa food on offer ranges from Mexican to Thai to Barbecue, carne asada to fish taco and frosty wine margaritas to cool burning tongues, and dance sweaty brows. Kids can learn to play the congas or make tortilla art at the “Salsa Art & Music Factory For Kids”.

The main music stage with renowned salsa and Latin jazz bands jumps from 11am to 7 pm. Admission is free as well as parking all around the downtown location at Fifth and “B” streets. Oxnard is just off the 101 Freeway and hour northwest of Los Angeles. Or save the gas and take a train, about $18 from Union Station. © Bargain Travel West
