On Tuesday, July 12, a press conference took place regarding the 32nd edition of the “Fish and Seafood Festival” at CANIRAC facilities in Tijuana, where they revealed details about this event that will occur in Rosarito.

Led by CANIRAC Rosarito president, Alan Bautista Plascencia, he recalled that this festival originated in Tijuana during the 1980s when Rosarito was still a part of this municipality.

Alan Bautista mentioned that the festival has had great reception by the public since it began, with its 30th edition being the best well received, where more than 5,000 attendants convened at the garden of Hotel Rosarito. However, due to the pandemic, the festival could not be repeated in what would have been its 31st edition.

The festival’s 32nd edition will come back on Sunday, August 7, once again in the gardens of Hotel Rosarito, with this edition bringing some new things for the attendants as well as the 20 participating restaurants.

According to CANIRAC Rosarito president, the festival will have the participation of 10 local restaurants, and 10 restaurants from Tijuana, Ensenada, Mexicali, and Tecate. It is still unknown which restaurants will participate, however.

One of the new things that will occur at this event is that the restaurants will have to create a dish with an ingredient or product offered by participating distributors. This dish, however, must not be a part of their normal menu, but must be completely new. The restaurants that creates the best dish will receive an award.

The presale entry cost will be $300 pesos ($14 dollars), while the cost at the event itself will be $350 pesos ($17 dollars). The ticket will allow you to taste the dishes exhibited by the 20 restaurants, a glass, and wine and beer tasting.

The event will have live music. Alan Bautista did not reveal which group will play, but stated that they play salsa music, and also said that the musicians who will participate at this festival will be from Cuba.
