Visiting Puerto Vallarta means immersing yourself in the sights, sounds, and tastes of Mexico! But this area’s ambiance, natural beauty, and cultural richness aren’t all there is to experience. Mexico has a long list of fascinating and fun holidays you can celebrate with us, along with sporting events, festivals, and annual events for the gay community.
When you’re planning your Puerto Vallarta vacation, this calendar can help you discover all the cultural and artistic events that Vallarta has to offer! Get everything you want out of your getaway!
Puerto Vallarta has established itself as a vibrant center of art creation, exhibition, and promotion. An essential contribution to the city's art scene is the event, held every Wednesday from 6 to 10 pm, from October 28th, 2020, through May 26th, 2021. The participating galleries in Centro Historico exhibit work by influential national and international artists. You'll find remarkable paintings, exceptional sculptures, fine ceramics, and jewelry.
Homegrown and handicraft! All your beloved farmers market vendors under the Puerto Vallarta sun every Saturday from 9 am to 2 am at Lazaro Cardenas Park.
This fantastic Market is a great place to meet locals, shop local, and grab a bite. This Mercado is par excellence! Great fare. Foods, candles, soaps, clothing, chiropractors, and more! The Market is so wonderful to visit with so many great things for all to enjoy and purchase.
For the eighth consecutive year, Puerto Vallarta will be ready to welcome you in 2021 to the most important LGBT Pride in the region... Vallarta Pride! The entire LGBT community comes together to organize an event that celebrates our destination's sexual diversity in a 7-day festival that will offer art and culture, concerts, entertainment, cinema, fun, lots of parties, and our great pride parade.
Our main events are free and non-profit to show the world the best of our city and why it's recognized worldwide as an LGBT mecca that receives both national and international gay visitors mixed with a sophisticated culture surrounding a vibrant local community that is constantly evolving.
The Vallarta Pride Organizing Committee adopted this heritage to work together with public and private associations to place our city on the world stage of LGBT celebrations.
Vallarta Pride works towards a future without discrimination where we all have the same rights under current laws. We can achieve this through the LGBT events that we have prepared to inspire, commemorate and celebrate our community.
Of course, there are other, less widely celebrated holidays in Mexico and theater performances, concerts, art shows, sporting events, and more all year round. When you book your vacation with us, be sure to ask about what will be happening in and around Puerto Vallarta during your stay!
