24th Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival—A Weekend of Sizzling Music, Dance & Food
Whether the word “salsa” brings to mind hot Latin sounds and exotic dancing or spicy culinary flavors, the 24th Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival has it all. The festival, July 29 and 30, celebrates the flavors of salsa – the food, music and dance.
It all takes place at Plaza Park, Fifth and “B” streets in historic downtown Oxnard from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. both days. Festival goers are treated to live salsa and Latin jazz bands, salsa dance lessons, a tasting tent with dozens of different varieties of salsa and hot sauces and a salsa recipe challenge.
The two days also feature a vendor marketplace, international cuisine and a kids zone. Presented by the Oxnard Downtowners, the festival attracts salsa lovers from throughout southern California. Festival admission and parking are free. Main stage seating is just $5. For festival information, call 805‐535‐4060 or visit www.oxnardsalsafestival.com and on Facebook.
