(Gerry Furth-Sides)  The 24th Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival mixes up hot Latin sounds and exotic dancing with spicy culinary flavors and children’s activities.  The event has all the old-fashioned summertime fun of a class small town. The festival, July 29 and 30, is produced by a dedicated civic team to celebrate the town and flavors of salsa.
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 excitement all takes place at historic Plaza Park, Fifth and “B” streets in historic downtown Oxnard from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. both days.

Oxnard is a marvelous place to get away even for one day, and the area has enough history and activities to last weeks. It was an “insiders” celebrity hideaway so special that they named one area, “Hollywood Beach.”
