Isla Mujeres Artist Fair
Most Isla Mujeres events happen in high season (Dec – April) and then there are a few things that stick around all year like the Isla Mujeres Artist fair and ongoing live music around the island.
THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH IN THE TOWN SQUARE
A monthly event to celebrate the talent of local & visiting artists on Isla Mujeres, occurring the FIRST Thursday of every month, 4pm-7pm.
In October 2011, Barlito began hosting an Artist Series in front of their bakery & market café on the corner of Hidalgo & Abasolo. Our hope was to make this Series into an Island event. Our wish has come true.
Now with the support of the Municipal & the Office of Tourism, the Isla Mujeres Artist Fair is a monthly event in the Zocolo on the FIRST Thursday of EVERY month from 4pm to 7pm. Local & visiting artists, food vendors, and local non-profits share their talents with the residents & visitors of Isla Mujeres.
Our definition of an artist is a person whose work shows exceptional creative ability or skill. We are looking for individuals who create, write, perform, paint, draw, sculpt, sketch, bake, teach, photograph, etc. The artist fair is about individual artists & their talents. Commercial products or people that sell other people’s products are not eligible for participation.
Barlito is thrilled to have partnered up with our Sponsors to create a spectacular event for the visitors & people of Isla to meet the artists that are inspired by our beautiful Island.
Where is the Zocolo?
The zocalo is located in front of the municipal building downtown. However the artist fair has been moved to the Cultural centre on Av. Guerrero and is being held every Thursday during high season.
The fair has moved to behind the municipal building and operates Thurs thru Saturday from 12 noon to 10 pm every week.
