The evening will celebrate all the beauty and adventure Baja California holds and our work to conserve the peninsula’s most beautiful and wild beaches, islands and lagoons along our shared coastline.
The Baja Bash will bring the best of Baja to join with some of San Diego’s favorites in a flavorful fiesta mixing food, drinks and music from throughout the region. We’ll enjoy a sunset cocktail reception, Baja-inspired sustainable cuisine, a silent and live auction, photography exhibit and live music.
WiLDCOAST is thrilled to announce that Nortec Collective: Hiperboreal will bring their border region musical fusion to the Pavilion! Nortec hit the music scene in 2002, and since then this Grammy-nominated ensemble has impressed critics and crowds alike, from SXSW to the most notable venues in Europe and Japan. Based in Tijuana, Hiperboreal combines electronic music with musical elements from the northern region of Mexico.
In addition, internationally known chef and restaurateur Javier Plascencia, of Mision 19, will lead a trio of rockstar chefs to create our menu. Javier has been featured in the New Yorker and the Food Network and will bring Diego Hernandez, the lead chef at Corazon de Tierra in the Valle de Guadalupe, to join in the creative culinary creations!
Adobe Guadalupe, a premier winery and bed and breakfast from the Valle de Guadalupe in Ensenada, will provide wine to pair with our sustainable menu. And Peligroso Tequila will create a special ‘WiLDCOAST margarita’ for us to toast during the sunset cocktail reception.
In addition, we will be honoring Telemundo journalist Maria Celeste and Dr. Octavio Aburto, researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, for their tireless efforts to educate the public about threats to our coasts and oceans. We will honor them this year as our first ‘Defensores Del Oceano!’
More details will be posted regularly on our website and Facebook page as they are confirmed, so buy your tickets today! This is sure to be party of the year, so don’t wait until the last minute! Proceeds from the event will benefit WiLDCOAST’s continued efforts to conserve the most threatened coastal habitats and wildlife in the Californias and southern Mexico. We hope to see you there!
