About us

The Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival is a non-profit civil association, whose mission is to create an international world class event in this magical town, bring first rate musicians to a diverse audience (both local, national and foreign), generate tourism and increase cultural awareness within the community, thus contributing to the offer of a cultural alternative of quality for the inhabitants and tourists of this city. 

Founded in 2004, the festival has grown every year in prestige, talent and size. ZIGF is truly a community festival and we rely heavily on support from our audience, our community, and the musicians themselves, who donate their time and talent in exchange for a week with us here in paradise. The operations of the festival are carried out by a volunteer organizing committee and dedicated community members who volunteer in the weeks leading up to and during the festival. We also depend on some private sponsors and small local businesses that support with discounts or donations in kind.
