As the summer heats up, so does the fishing competition in Cabo San Lucas. Each summer, one of the most popular Cabo San Lucas events is the Stars & Stripes Tournament. Since it appeared on the 1997 Cabo events calendar, the tournament has been raising money for charity, drawing anglers from around the world, and hosting star-studded parties, a summer celebration not to be missed. If you’re planning a trip and looking at Cabo upcoming events, be sure to mark your calendar for June 27-30 when the Stars and Stripes Tournament 2019 hits the open water.
What makes this tournament stand out on the Cabo events calendar is the philanthropic side of the weekend. The Stars & Stripes Tournament was created with the goal of raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, but since then, the event has expanded and donated over $29 million to Mexican and American charities that provide assistance, mentorship, and education to children and teens. The beneficiaries of the Stars and Stripes Tournament 2019 include Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, Miracles for Kids, and Building Baja's Future. Its heart for giving back to the world is part of what makes this tournament one of the most highly-anticipated Cabo upcoming events.
Some of the favorite Cabo San Lucas events are the annual fishing tournaments where locals and visitors all race to hunt the biggest catch. During the Stars & Stripes Tournament, teams of anglers head out to sea, seeking dorado, tuna, sailfish, swordfish, wahoo, and, of course, marlin. It’s easy for world travelers to join in the chase since the tournament arranges boats for teams, and spectators can watch anglers haul in massive catches. With so many people traveling for the Stars and Stripes Tournament 2019, the competition is sure to be lively and friendly.
As the tournament expanded over the years to one of the biggest on the Cabo events calendar, it grew to include a golf tournament as well. For those who want to stay on dry ground, you can golf at two of Cabo’s immaculate and breathtaking courses, Club Campestre and Cabo del Sol. Sign up as a team of four or be placed with other golf enthusiasts for a day of incredible views, technically challenging holes, and competitive camaraderie. If you can’t travel with your own clubs, rentals are available to make your time at these Cabo upcoming events as exciting as possible.
When you’re not participating in the fishing or golfing events in Cabo San Lucas, there are plenty of other parties and activities that keep the tournament going. Participants will have access to indulging at a world-class spa throughout the weekend. During the day, party on a private beach and cool off with margaritas before cleaning up for silent and live auctions with dinner each night. This year, Bret Michaels, the lead singer of Poison, will be headlining the evenings’ entertainment where you can dance the night away.
