Tijuana and San Diego have always been partners in community and business, creating the fourth largest bi-national marketplace in the world. Amidst the federal government’s pledges to deport Americans, uproot businesses and build more walls on the United States-Mexico Border, Tijuana and San Diego leaders in business, craft beer, art and architecture are coming together for a special Barrios Hermanos BLVD Market, an outdoor ‘foodie’ block party in North Park to celebrate unity.
Attendees to the BLVD Market, held at the intersection of El Cajon Boulevard and Utah Street, will enjoy the first public release Cross-Border Beer flight featuring craft beer from three 30ECB brewers, Pariah Brewing Co., The Homebrewer and Automatic Brewing Company alongside three Tijuana brewers, Cerveceria Insurgente, Cerveza Fauna, and Border Psycho Brewery. The “Cross-Border Beer Flight” is a collaboration between Telefonica Gastro Park and El Cajon Boulevard BIA, Barrios Hermanos partners seeking to developing stronger business relationships across the border.
Bilingual rock band Karina Frost and her Banduvians will perform live amongst expositions by Tijuana Zine Fest artists, Tijuana architecture school Escuela Libre de Arquitectura, as well as food, local businesses and Low-Riders standing in unity to support a Tijuana and San Diego brotherhood.
