The 12th Annual Salsa Festival will encompass 11 blocks of downtown Redwood City from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The fun festival will feature salsa music, salsa dancing, salsa tasting and, yes, even a tequila tasting. The public tasting, a competition featuring both professional and amateur chefs, takes place from noon to 5 p.m., and organizers say you should come early to be sure to try them all.
Three stages (Courthouse Square Salsa Stage, Latin Jazz Stage and Reggae Stage) will feature Salsa, Latin Jazz, and Reggae music. The kids will enjoy hands-on art projects and a play area with bounce houses. City and community booths and local food vendors will also be on hand.
The festival takes place on Broadway between Middlefield and Hamilton and on the beautiful Theatre Way, all of which will be pedestrian-only.
