Fiestas del Sol Mexicali

This is one of the biggest fairs in the northwest part of the country. It has concerts, food, art and a kids’ zone.
The event will focus on cuisine from the region of Sinaloa. It’s open to the public, to cooking students and professionals. Plans include demonstrations by chefs and sommeliers, plus cooking contests, conferences, and dinners.
Los Cabos hosts two back-to-back fishing tournaments this month: the Los Cabos Offshore Tournament, Oct. 18-20, and Bisbee’s Black and Blue, Oct. 22-26. The latter has been called the world’s richest fishing event, with millions of dollars in prizes.
