Every year, Nashville opens their hearts to the children of Isla Mujeres in what has become a perfect combination of good times and goodwill. For nearly a decade, The Island Time Music and Fishing Fest has given music lovers and fishing enthusiasts the opportunity to interact with talented writers and performers under the welcoming skies of Mexico’s best kept secret—the island community of Isla Mujeres.
Next February, attendees will enjoy world class performances daily in intimate venues across the island, with unparalleled access to the artists. Fishermen will take to the neighboring waters in pursuit of migrating sailfish and top honors in an organized fishing tournament.
Best of all, proceeds from the week’s activities—and the accompanying online auction—benefit the children of Isla Mujeres; one of those being the operations of the island’s Little Yellow Schoolhouse and its service to local, special needs children.
Year after year, multiple renowned musicians join us in supporting our cause by bringing you some of the best entertainment in the world.
The festival revolves around five days of live music and entertainment by nationally known singer/songwriters and musicians. These intimate performances have been a highlight of the tournament over the past seven years.
Enjoy meeting and hearing the story behind many hit songs!
The Little Yellow School House began when it came to realization that there was a desperate need for a school for special needs children in Isla Mujeres.
The festival began 10 years ago to help raise money to benefit these children and put them in a school, free of charge, where they could learn and grow.
From the successes of the Island Time Music Fest & Fishing Tournament, the school now has six classrooms, full time teachers and over 50 students.
We hope to continue to raise money so that we are able to provide the funds for ALL special needs children of Isla to benefit from the Little Yellow School House.
Isla Mujeres is a fisherman and fun lover’s dream. Each winter the sailfish arrive en masse to the beautiful clear waters of this island paradise. The Island Time Music Festival hosts one of the best Fishing Tournaments that Isla sees all year! It is the perfect tournament to show your angling skills and enjoy world class entertainment all while helping a great cause.
