The 25th Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival is set for July 28-29, 2018 at Plaza Park, Fifth and “B” Streets. This annual, free celebration runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday and celebrates everything salsa … the food, the music and the dance!
Presented by the Oxnard Downtowners, the annual event features spicy food and fiery entertainment and draws salsa lovers to the City of Oxnard for the two-day action packed celebration. 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. Event admission and parking are free. Main stage seating is just $5.
The Oxnard Salsa Festival was launched in 1994 by the Oxnard Downtowners to bring people downtown to celebrate Oxnard’s multicultural heritage and agricultural roots. Over the years, the Oxnard Salsa Festival has grown in popularity as salsa dancing and salsa music gained momentum. Today, the Salsa Festival is the City of Oxnard’s largest, free community event.
