Island Time Music and Fishing Festival 2017

Island Time Music and Fishing Festival will take place next year from February 7-11, 2017 on the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres.  The Island Time Music and Fishing Fest has given music lovers and fishing enthusiasts the opportunity to interact with talented writers and performers under the welcoming skies of this paradise island of Isla Mujeres.  

For seven years now, six days in February are organised for attendees who come to enjoy world class performances daily in intimate venues across the island.

Fishermen  also take to the waters in pursuit of migrating sailfish and the fishing tournament.  Isla Mujeres is a fisherman’s dream. Each winter the sailfish arrive en masse to the beautiful clear waters of this island paradise. The Island Time Music Festival hosts one of the best Fishing Tournaments that Isla sees all year! It is the perfect tournament to show your angling skills and enjoy world class entertainment all while helping a great cause.

Most importantly, proceeds from the week’s activities—and the accompanying online auction—benefit the operations of the island’s Little Yellow Schoolhouse and its service to local, special needs children.  The Little Yellow School House began when it came to realization that there was a desperate need for a school for special needs children in Isla Mujeres.  The festival began 7 years ago to help raise money to benefit these children and put them in a school, free of charge, where they could learn and grow.

 From the successes of the Island Time Music Fest & Fishing Tournament, the school now has six classrooms, full time teachers and over 50 students.  They hope to continue to raise money with the Island Time Music Festival for many more years to come in Isla Mujeres.
