Mariachi!The 2nd Annual Rosarito Beach International Mariachi & Folklórico Festival will be back in this colorful oceanfront community for a bigger-and-better five-day encore encuentro. The activities will begin on Wednesday, September 28th, with three days of Student Workshops followed on Friday evening, September 30th, by a Participants Showcase for musicians and dancers from both sides of the border.

It will conclude with a weekend celebration featuring a Competencia between the very best practitioners of both genres chosen to represent Team Mexico and Team USA. The two-day competition will bookend the Saturday evening (October 1st) themed Extravaganza, “Past, Present and Future,” which will feature two Grammy Award-winning superstars of mariachi. The grand finale will take place on Sunday afternoon, October 2nd, when over $10,000 in prize money will be awarded to the best of the international grupos.

It is important to note that despite all the features that have been added to this year’s expanded event, the prices of tickets and accommodations have not been raised.
