Festival Sayulita To Return in 2015
Published May 7, 2014, 11:47am -
The first annual Festival Sayulita, presented by SayulitaBeach.com, was a huge success, creating a unique gathering for all lovers of Mexico, film, tequila, food, music & surf. Festival Sayulita, 2015 is already set for January 14-18th and promises an even broader variety of international films, spirit tastings, live music, surf events and local cuisine.
2015 Festival Sayulita will continue the highlights of last year’s Festival, including a 7 meter beach viewing screen, a signature Master Tasting where a variety of Mexican artisan spirits can be sampled, a family-friendly surf completion, and multi-course food pairing dinners. In addition, this year’s planning committee is partnering with sponsors to add venues and events which will make the festival even more memorable. An indoor film venue will feature matinees, leaving the evenings open for those wishing to partake in the “spirit” and music portions of the festival. Evening events will expand to include dinner theater and a music stage for live bands. One entire evening will be dedicated to a retro drive-in theatre event that will be able to accommodate cars, golf carts, ATV’s and folks on foot. To ensure the littlest amongst us have fun, a Dia de los Nino’s (Children’s Day) is in the works, which will feature games and prizes in the plaza and a special viewing night for children at the Casa de la Cultura.
As in the previous year, there will be all kinds of options to attend this event, from free to VIP. Due to many requests, VIP ticket availability will increase. VIPs will again be welcome to movie preview nights, special seating throughout the event, and private tastings. A VIP lounge will allow VIPs to access concierge service throughout the Festival and provide a secluded get-away space during the weekend. To accommodate VIP ticket sales, these tickets will be on sale starting in July, 2014.
The colorful coastal town of Sayulita, in Riviera Nayarit, provides the perfect background for this multicultural festival. Once known for its fishing business and scenic beaches, Sayulita now boasts a thriving community of local, Mexican restaurants and craftsman alongside trendsetting establishments. Surfing, paddle boarding, yoga, mountain biking and other outdoor activities helps make Sayulita an irresistible destination. Festival Sayulita will highlight these many assets while spicing up the town with new and never-been-seen international films, diverse and cutting-edge musical groups and spirits from boutique Mexican manufactures of tequila, whisky, wine and hand-crafted beer.
