Main Stage Seating Now Available at the 23rd Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival

healing arial,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>For those looking to get closer to the music, the dancing and the exhilarating sounds of salsa during the 23rd Annual Oxnard Salsa Festival can reserve a Main Stage Reserved Seating option now available for the special Friday Night Concert on July 29 and during Festival weekend, July 30 & 31.

The Friday night kick-off concert will be held at Plaza Park from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will feature Cecilia Noel & ‘The Wild Clams’.  Cecilia Noel is a passionate, flamboyant and exotic singer & performer, originally from Lima, Peru.  Noel and her crew, ‘The Wild Clams’, combine the elements of salsa, soul, jazz, funk and Afro-Cuban music that deliver an infectious Latin sound that takes on 80’s classic rock ‘n roll hits.  General adult admission is $15 and $20 at the gate.  A table seating six is available for $120.

During the weekend, Festival-goers can reserve private tables under umbrellas for $240 per day with seating for six.  The private seating allows for an opportunity to sit back, relax and catch all of the action!  Plus, the reserved seating also provides much closer access to the dance floor.

Another great way to be part of the experience is to opt for a reservation in Club Salsa, available on Saturday & Sunday during the Festival.  All tables also have shade umbrellas plus a private dance floor.   The cost is $30 per person and attendees are provided with a pass into Club Salsa
