Once again San Pancho will be hosting their 3-day Music Festival, now in it’s 17th year. The Festival will be held Friday, Feb. 24th through Sunday, Feb. 26th in San Pancho’s Plaza del Sol. As in recent years the Festival will feature regional, national and international artists on two alternating stages providing continuous entertainment.
The event will begin at 5pm each day, with performances up until 11pm each night. Restaurants and food vendors will be operating at the event so attendees can dine and enjoy refreshments without missing any of the performances. Tables and chairs will be available for those that arrive early. However, festival seating has been customary over the years, so it is recommended that the public bring their own chairs or blankets.
The festival began in 2001 in the backyard of a local resident, and has since grown into one of the most popular music events in the region featuring well over 25 groups and 100 musicians each year, that cover the gamut of musical genres, and traditions.
Along with the generous donations by attendees, the Music Festival is entirely supported by the gracious contributions of local musicians and international recording artists, and by the local residents of San Pancho who volunteer their time to help host this popular event. Donations are encouraged, but there is no intent for the Festival to profit from the performances. Tax deductible donations can be made online via the Chacala Cultural Foundation at: http://www.chacalaculturalfoundation.org. Additionally, proceeds from sales of music and video CD’s go directly to the performing artists.
