La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, otherwise known as a relatively sleepy fishing village, is recognized regionally as having a lively music scene, especially this time of year.
But local organizer (and La Cruz booster/promoter/wunderkind) Jason Foster Barnes has taken this dynamic up a notch and in association with the Asociación Restaurantera de Riviera Nayarit (Riviera Nayarit Dining) has put together a week-long celebration, Festival Savor & Musik that will begin Monday, December 9th with a Kick-off celebration at the glorieta (roundabout @ Calle Coral and Av. Langosta) at 7:00 pm. Starting at 8:00 pm, four different groups will perform at four different restaurants.
On Tuesday and running through Saturday, four different restaurants will feature two bands each with 7:00 and 8:00 pm sets.
Participating restaurants are: Black Forest, Casa Hule, Enrique's, Frascati, Gecko Rojo, Jardin Del Pulpo, Masala, Oso's Oyster Bar & Seafood Market Restaurant, Philo's and Sandzibar.
Sunday will be a day-long music fest in the central Plaza in La Cruz starting at 2:00 in the afternoon, with different music acts every 45 minutes.
This is a fantastic way to not only hear some new music, but visit a venue you may not have previously tried. It’s a win-win for the town, the restaurants and everyone who loves music.
Maps and schedule brochures will be available at participating restaurants and throughout La Cruz. For the festival schedule visit Festival Savor & Musik on their Facebook page.
