WiLDCOAST, an international conservation team that conserves coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife will host the first Annual Baja Bash at the Port Pavilion at the Broadway Pier on the San Diego harbor on Saturday, June 2. The evening will be a celebration of all the natural beauty and exciting adventure Baja California holds and WiLDCOAST’s work to conserve the peninsula’s most beautiful and wild beaches, islands and lagoons along our shared coastline.
Baja Bash will bring together environmental and community leaders, surf industry legends and corporate supporters from throughout the region. The best of Baja will join some of San Diego’s favorites in a flavorful fiesta mixing food, drinks and music from throughout the region. Guests will enjoy a sunset cocktail reception, Baja-inspired sustainable cuisine, a silent auction, photography exhibit and live music.
Nortec Collective: Hiperboreal will bring their border region musical fusion to the Pavilion. Nortec hit the music scene in 2002, and since then, this Grammy Award-nominated ensemble has impressed critics and crowds alike, from SXSW to the most notable venues in Europe and Japan. Based in Tijuana, Hiperboreal combines electronic music with musical elements from the northern region of Mexico.
In addition, a trio of rockstar chefs will create our menu, including internationally known chef and restaurateur Javier Plascencia, of Mision 19, who has been featured in the New Yorker and the Food Network; Diego Hernandez, the lead chef at Corazon de Tierra in the Valle de Guadalupe; and Benito Molina and Solange Muris, from Manzanilla in Ensenada. You won’t want to miss their creative culinary creations.
To compliment the sustainable menu, wines of the Valle de Guadalupe, including Adobe Guadalupe, Casa de Piedra, Paralelo and other unique wines from the wine country of Baja will be featured. Peligroso Tequila will create a special ‘WiLDCOAST margarita’ to toast during the sunset cocktail reception.
In addition, we will be honoring Telemundo journalist Maria Celeste and Dr. Octavio Aburto, researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, for their tireless efforts to educate the public about threats to our coasts and oceans. We will honor them this year as our first ‘Defensores Del Oceano!’
More details will be posted regularly on the WiLDCOAST website and Facebook page as they are confirmed. Proceeds from the event will benefit WiLDCOAST’s continued efforts to conserve the most threatened coastal habitats and wildlife in the Californias and southern Mexico.
