San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato — The Magic Town Music Festival in San Miguel de Allende returns for a fifth year with a weekend of folk, rock, soul, country, latin funk, reggae and blues.

The Maylee Thomas Band, Pilaseca, Jon Christopher Davis, Katua, Jim Scarborough, Los Roadrunners, Continental Blues Band and Ana Red are among the musical highlights. Cheetah Lee and Paco Rivera return as masters of ceremonies.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site/Spanish colonial town of San Miguel de Allende provides the backdrop for the event.

The event, run completely by volunteers, directly supports Centro Infantíl de los Ángeles, a local organization that benefits working mothers, their children, and their families in San Miguel de Allende.

Festival highlights:

Thursday, March 8, 7 p.m.: VIP Kick-Off Party takes place once again at a beautiful private home on Sollano. With beautiful views of Centro and the Rio Laja valley, the home offers plenty of spaces and gardens to relax, dance, and to enjoy great food from San Miguel’s best restaurants: The Restaurant, Buenos Aires Bistro, Linnea Rufo Events, and Smoked N’ Low. VIP Kick-off Party admission price is $100 USD/$1800 MXN per person. Ticket sales are limited to 125 guests and the event is always a sell-out.

Friday, March 9: Special Event at Santos Resto Bar, #7 Suspiros: Great Jams with festival musicians, door prizes, drinks and food available for purchase. Music starts at 9. 200 peso recommended donation.

Saturday, March 10 is Festival Day at the “over-the-top” “Plaza San Arvino,” known affectionately to locals as “The Goose.” Doors open at 2 pm and the music rocks until 9, immediately followed by an on-site after-party. Tickets: Purchase online at www.MagicTownMusic.org or at Galeria Buena Vida, 42 Aldama in Centro. VIP Area tickets are available for $100 USD/$1800 MXN. General Admission Festival Tickets are $30 USD/$540 MXN in advance or at the venue on Festival Day for $35 USD/$630 MXN.

Centro Infantíl San Pablo and Casa de los Ángeles formally joined forces in 2017 as Centro Infantil de los Ángeles. Both organizations were founded as a safe haven for single moms and serve some of the San Miguel de Allende community’s poorest children and their families.

Centro Infantíl de Los Ángeles includes daycare for infants and toddlers as well as preschool and kindergarten education for about 165 young children every weekday. This provides each child a solid foundation for entry into primary school.

The center also provides working parents the comfort of knowing their children are fed, nurtured and educated in a safe and caring environment as they work to make a better future for themselves as well as their community as a whole.

To date, over 1,800 volunteers from 34 countries have supported the organizations in multiple roles. Centro Infantil de los Ángeles receives no  government support and owes its continued existence and success to the support of a committed community.

All net proceeds of MTMF events are donated to the charity, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
