After a five-year hiatus, the Oxnard Salsa Festival is back with two full days of hot and spicy fun on Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28 so get ready for salsa tasting, salsa dancing, margaritas, music and more.

One of the hot tickets this summer will undoubtedly be the Oxnard Salsa Festival when it returns to its hometown the weekend of July 27 and 28 after a five-year break.  Both days will be filled with a stellar lineup of live music, delicious food, refreshing beverages, and an eclectic selection of craft and retail vendors.  And since the festival is celebrating all things “Salsa”, festivalgoers will be able to taste spicy samples of Salsa and enjoy the rhythmic sounds of Salsa music and the fiery moves of Salsa dancing. The popular event takes place in Plaza Park in downtown Oxnard.  

General Admission tickets to the Oxnard Salsa Festival start at $6.99 while children 12 and under are free.  Salsa Tasting Experience tickets include festival entry, an exclusive shaded area, and salsa tasting from local and national salsa vendors for $19.99.  All tickets provide full access to food, beverage and marketplace vendors, as well as live entertainment.  Festival hours on both Saturday and Sunday are from 11am – 7pm and VIP and group seating tickets will also be available.

The Oxnard Salsa Festival premiered in 1993 and is presented by the Oxnard Downtowners.  It features the region’s top salsa and Latin Jazz bands, marketplace shopping, two international food courts, a kid’s play zone with rides, a salsa tasting tent, and non-stop salsa dancing.  The festival takes place in coastal Oxnard, the largest city in Ventura County, situated along scenic Pacific Coast Highway.
