Sabor de Chelem / Taste of Chelem 2022

Join Us for the Taste of Chelem on Sunday, November 13.

Tickets for the Event go on sale on Monday, October 3rd and can be purchased at:
Farmers Market at Natural Thangs – on Monday (Chuburna)
Bull Pen Restaurant (Chelem)
Lizard Joe’s / YucaTexa (Chelem)
Costa Azul II (Chelem)
Barlovento Restaurant-Bar (Progreso)
Hennessey’s Irish Pub (Merida)
There will be no at-the-door- tickets available. Pre-purchase only.

For many living here at the Beach, you may not be familiar with the Taste of Chelem (as our last event was in 2020 prior to the pandemic). We like to describe the event as a street fair, with 3 terrific Live Bands, local Food Vendors selling tasting plates, Cold Drinks for purchase, and a Silent Auction.

All proceeds go to fund the Chelem Apoyo Escolar program supporting the Chelem Public Library and the Chelem area School Facilities.

We hope you will join us on November 13, 2022 for a fabulous community event!

Chelem Apoyo Supporting the Elementary School by Providing Trash Cans

The Chelem elementary school recently got some much needed repairs. We asked what the school now needs and the directora said that all of the trash cans in the class rooms were removed and not returned. So we decided to purchase new trash cans. Funds for things like this come from donations and events to the Chelem Apoyo Escolar program. Thank you for your donations!
