We are less than a few weeks away from the upcoming San Diego Salsa Bachata Kizomba Festival and more information is now available for the event. Below is an updated schedule of events that you can refer to throughout the event. Don’t forget that the entire event is full of dance workshops, lessons, performances by some of the most gifted dancers in the world and of course great social dancing available for you to take part in.
San Diego’s Dia de San Juan Salsa and Bachata Festival is coming up soon and with it a great opportunity to experience Puerto Rican culture here locally. The Dia de San Juan has its roots in the Catholic feast day of St. John, commemorating the birth of St. John the Baptist 6 months before Jesus’ birth (which is why it falls on June 24th.)
This year we are fortunate to have none other than Tito Puente Jr. performing live at the event. A Tribute to El Rey Tito Puente Featuring his son and Honoring the great Timbalero from the Tito Rodriguez Orchestra, Mr. Pat Rodriguez will be some of the highlights this year.
Presented by Tommy Rosas’ Latin Flavor Productions, the event will be hosted by Chris Springer of Jazz 88.3 fame. There will be a salsa and bachata emphasis with 2 stages of great music for all those interested in celebrating the holiday.
America’s largest Latin party cruise is back for 2012! The first of a series of upcoming yacht parties is scheduled for Memorial Day and tickets will be going on sale soon. As we have seen the past, these events always sell out and its not hard to understand why.
Some of the great features of the Sabor on the Bay Yacht Party include:
3-hour cruise featuring breathtaking views of San Diego harbor by night
3 floors of music (Live Salsa/Bachata band, Top 40 DJ’s & Steel Drum Duo on rooftop)
The San Diego Salsa Bachata Festival has found a new home at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. Located on San Diego bay, the venue will allow dancers visiting San Diego the opportunity to not just have spectacular panoramic views of the San Diego skyline but easy access to the airport and many San Diego attractions such as Balboa Park.
The redesigned hotel offers five restaurants, three swimming pools, tennis courts, a spa and jogging trails to allow dancers to relax a little in between events. Here is a short video highlighting the new venue and what it offers to guests:
The San Diego Salsa Bachata Festival is coming up September 15th through the 18th and the schedule of events has been recently updated.

Although Cafe Sevilla is still not open in their new Fifth Avenue location, the club is keeping their beat alive through their popular yacht party. It’s the return of the biggest boat party in America & they are kicking off the summer right during Memorial Day weekend.
The 3rd annual “dress in white” party will feature a 3 hour cruise showcasing breathtaking views of San Diego Harbor by night and more importantly great LIVE dance music for salsa and Latin dancers to enjoy.

Angel and Tulane from A Time to Dance Studio will be offering salsa lessons at the event and the headlining act will be Son Mayor, an LA band that plays with a high energy style of Salsa popular in Southern California venues like The Mayan, Steven’s Steakhouse & The Hollywood Bowl.
THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT- Purchase your tickets early!!! Also don’t forget that this is a Dress in All White party. You don’t have to wear white by why would you want to stand out as the only person on the boat not wearing white? If white isn’t your color just try to find something white like a skirt, tie, shoes, hat, etc.
