What to do in Tijuana this weekend (Oct. 4-5)


Tijuana tourism officials have got their work cut out for them. Close to thirty bodies were dumped this week in the city’s streets (as of Thursday night), presumably the work of major drug cartel groups. While the body counts may be sobering, life goes on for the city’s law-abiding residents. Here are some places where you may find them:

 

Entijuanarte art festival: More than 155 artists, most of them from Mexico, will participate in the fourth annual Entijuanarte art festival. The event will take place at the city’s border-adjacent cultural center (CECUT – for directions go here). In addition to showcasing sculptures and paintings, the event will include conferences, performances, videos, theatre, contemporary dance and music. The event takes place from noon to 9 p.m. both days, and it’s free.

Visit El Cubo: While you are at the CECUT, check out the cultural center’s newest addition, El Cubo.

If you can stomach it: Tijuana’s Fiesta Brava Gastronomica continues this Saturday ( as well as Oct. 11, and Oct. 18-19). The event, which starts at 4 p.m., includes bullfights and top dishes from local restaurants. It’s located in a space near the La Diferencia and Villa Saverios restaurants in the Zona Rio. For a general idea of where it is, go here and then start asking around. General admission is about $30 per person.

*Across the border does its best to verify this information but suggests visitors do their own additional research because venues change, errors can be made, and events cancelled.*
