February 20, 2020


The line-up for the second day of Riverfest 9 at Del Rio BBQ Bar on Sunday, March 1, will have more of a Latin feel, with Mariachi Real Del Jorullo, Tongo & Joby, Cheko Ruiz & Friends, Johanna’s Band and Media Luna all confirmed.

All proceeds from Riverfest go to the Pasitos de Luz charity for disabled children. This inspirational local non-profit has been helping kids with disabilities to walk, talk and reach their full potential for over 20 years.

Admission is just 100 pesos per person at the gate which will go directly to supporting the children. Doors open 11:30 am.

Sunday Patron Package!

If you want a great deal look no further! For groups of four people, you can choose to take advantage of an advance-purchase Sunday Patron Ticket Package. The Sunday Patron Package for groups of 4 offers you:

• More essential support to the children of Pasitos de Luz
• Gate entry
• Reserved seating
• Welcome drink (beer, margarita or limonada)
• Family-style service Riverfest Parrillada Lunch (includes several types of BBQ, beans, guacamole, rice, etc).

All of this for just 2,500 pesos per group of 4 people. This option is the only way to secure reserved seating on Sunday. It’s great value and a good opportunity to get together with friends while providing much-needed support for our kids! You will purchase your ticket with an assigned timeframe to eat so you know when your food will arrive in a one hour timespan.

You can buy Sunday Patron Tickets by contacting Barb Bremner at condo211@yahoo.ca (until sold out). Please note we have limited numbers of patron tickets available and they typically go quickly.
