Cherished Bajawondergrass Festival Returns

 Cherished Bajawondergrass Festival Returns

The Sea of Cortez, aka “the aquarium of the world”, will provide the perfect setting for the second annual BajaWonderGrass, an intimate gathering of WinterWonderGrass family and friends taking place April 24-26, 2024, at La Tuna, a beach bar in El Sargento, Baja California Sur. Tickets go on sale today for the festival, featuring several WonderGrass favorites: Fruition, The Lil Smokies, WinterWonderWomen, Pickin’ on the Dead and Bonfire Dub, with special guest artist-at-large, Mark Morris. 

According to founder Scotty Stoughton, this event is small, simple and family-friendly. There are no VIP passes and shoes are optional. 

“We are honored to be welcomed back to a place I call a part-time home. The gathering takes place in the perfect little beachside bar and restaurant, with two stages, fresh ceviche, tacos, and ice-cold beer. Once again, we are supporting the local ambulance district and planning daily beach and community clean-ups,” Stoughton reports. 

“Please lend a hand, enjoy the local culture and leave nothing behind but your heart.” 

Like every WonderGrass event, the goal is to leave this beautiful festival destination cleaner than it was upon arrival. 

The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, is a protected UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its biodiversity — which makes it one of the best fishing destinations in the world. La Ventana, adjacent to El Sargento, is renowned for kitesurfing and wing foiling but the area offers abundant hiking, mountain biking, fishing, stand-up paddling, snorkeling and even hot springs.

WonderGrass festivals include WinterWonderGrass Steamboat, March 1-3, 2024, in Steamboat Springs, Colo.; WinterWonderGrass Tahoe, April 5-7, 2024, in Olympic Valley, Calif.; BajaWonderGrass, April 24-26, 2024, at La Tuna, El Sargento, Baja California Sur, Mexico; and May-through-September RiverWonderGrass trips, dates to be announced.
