October Wine Country Baja California Book Festival

La Casa Vieja

La Casa Vieja

The second annual Baja Book Festival will be held on Saturday, October 15, from 11 am to 6 pm at the charming La Casa Vieja winery, restaurant and gallery in Ensenada’s wine country, the Valle de Guadalupe. The event is free and people of all ages and cultures are welcome! Free event bags will be given to attendees as supplies last!

The festival’s main sponsor is Oceans Aura Spa Products, along with the Rosarito Beach Hotel, Fondo de Cultura, Proturismo of Ensenada, Baja Bound, Baja Times, Baja Secretary of Tourism, Baja Real Estate Group, Rosarito TV 69 and Agua Cie—whew!

More than 20 authors will be present—including me—Mexicali MaryAnn Dogooder, along with my husband, Jim, and his brother, entertainer Mathew Dogooder.

There will be arts, crafts and more.

Free water will be provided by Agua Ciel (Baja’s best), as well as lots of food for sale including grilled items by La Casa Vieja, fish tacos from Splash! Restaurant, tempura oysters from Barra Azul restaurant, pastries by Hogaza Hogaza and sausages by Baja Sausage.

Local winemakers will be represented at the festival offering tastings and wines for purchase. Also present will be El Instituto Cuna and the Group of Native Artisans from Baja California.

To get there, take the Tijuana-Ensenada Transpeninsular Highway towards Ensenada. Shortly after passing through the Ensenada toll booth, take the Highway 3 (Ensenada-Tecate) La Ruta de Vino turn-off, heading east towards Tecate. La Casa Vieja is about 10 minutes away, at kilometer 93.5, on the north side of the road.

From Mexicali, take the way we are going—Highway 3 (Tecate-Ensenada) west, towards Ensenada.

It is a short and beautiful drive, whichever way you go, and it’s only about 70 miles from the U.S. border.

See you there!
