Welcome Reception in Juárez, Mexico
El Paso is a border town, so when we hold a food blogger conference in El Paso it is only right we include their sister sister of Juárez, Mexico.
We start IFBC21 with a bang. Our Welcoming Reception will take place at the amazing Viva Mexico restaurant. But calling it a restaurant alone does not do it justice.
Yes, we will be eating dinner at Viva Mexico. The full dinner buffet will feature dishes from throughout Chihuahua and Mexico. We will also be there early to get special presentation on preparation of some of the more famous cultural foods, such as Margaritas and Guacamole.
In addition, after dinner we will be treated to a Fiesta Mexicana, a show featuring dancers, horsemen, and singers highlighting the local culture.
Is it safe to visit Juárez? Absolutely! Locals cross the border all the time, often living on one side and commuting to the other. In Mexico we will be on a bus that takes us straight to the restaurant. At dinner, we’ll be seated with our own group, all of whom will be vaccinated or PCR tested. We’ll have local guides with us the entire time.
The excursion is included in your ticket price. Pre-registration as we get closer might be required simply to determine participant numbers.
It is not every day (or ever) you can attend a food blogger conference and visit two countries and two cultures in one day. Join us in Juárez for our Opening Reception, a night you will not forget!
