Todos Santos Mango Festival – The Juiciest Summer Event

In honor of summer’s most sumptuous fruit, Todos Santos celebrates in true Baja style with a chivalrous horse parade, live music, dancing, artisan products and, of course, heaps of mouthwatering mango dishes. The Todos Santos Mango Festival attracts locals and tourists alike who flock to this iconic cultural event, now in its ninth year.

Todos Santos is a picturesque coastal village, about an hour’s drive north of Los Cabos. Like its quiet neighbor Santiago, the town has escaped tourist crowds except for three days each summer when resident vendors and artists pay homage to the sweet and succulent mango. Festival dates vary each year, but usually fall around the end of July, when the mango harvest is ready.

Mango Festival events & activities in Baja

The annual Mango Festival promises lots of family fun, delicious eats and opportunities to see local chefs churn out a smorgasbord of tempting confections that feature this marvelous fruit. Festival goers can even watch a demonstration on preparing “mangate,” a delectable mango dessert that is popular around the Baja Peninsula.

Celebrations are centered around Barrio San Ignacio, an area famous for its juicy, oversized mangoes. The three-day festivities include dancing in the town square, foot races, games, folkloric ballet performances and other displays of traditional life in Todos Santos. The cabalgata (horse parade) is one of the festival’s most anticipated events, showcasing the region’s beautiful steeds and riders adorned in their finest attire.  If that weren’t spectacle enough, a new Mango Fest Queen is crowned each year!

Visitors to the festival can enjoy dozens of ways to sample the “King of Tropical Fruit” with an amazing selection of mango-themed snacks, desserts and gourmet dishes. This juicy gastronomic event makes for a wonderful day trip from Los Cabos, while providing a glimpse into the culture and traditions of its people.
