Fairs, Festivals and Fiestas: December Events in Baja

Fairs, Festivals and Fiestas: December Events in Baja

December ushers in the long holiday season in Baja California, with a wealth of traditional observances interspersed with secular events like fundraisers and culinary festivals.

New Year’s Eve bashes are the biggest event attractions, however. The annual midnight fireworks show over Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas is a highlight of fiestas at area resorts like Breathless and Casa Dorada, while the Rosarito Beach Hotel’s yearly dinner and dance party continues to be the celebration of choice for those crossing the border from Southern California. 

There are hundreds of local events that can be found on Baja.com. The following represent some of our favorite selections.

Event dates and details are subject to sudden change and cancellation. Please confirm with the event organizers before booking your trip.
