MERIDA, YUCATAN – Of course the main reason for attending the Mérida Music Festival is the selection of bands slated to play, but actually, the event is about more than just good music.
The beautiful grounds of Hacienda Dzibikak are reason enough to attend, but, if a lovely setting and great music aren’t enough to tempt you, maybe the variety of merchants who will be on site offering a wide spectrum of products will do the trick?
Caravana, Remedios Mágicos, Strenko, Sol y Sombra Ecotropical Furniture, Xcambo, Suhuy Tuunich, Bio-Protect AM 500, Taller Mg Erika Patricia, Julio Bates Antiques, La Tiendas de Antiguedades, Ron Milenario (selling MMF vodka), a MMF T shirt stand, Hacienda Sotuta, and Dolce Magazine are all scheduled to have stands at the festival, with other vendors likely to be added by Sunday.
More food and drink vendors have now been added, and those currently expected include El Curi, La Central, T Bar, C’est Pantastic, Le Café de Bruxelles, La Bierhaus, Amuza Social Food, The Beer Box, Green Station, and La Bodeguita del Medio. Apoala will be taking care of the catering in the VIP area, while T Bar and C’est Pantastic will be providing the VIP desserts.
