On November 18th and 19th, 2023, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle will become the epicenter of flavor with the fourth edition of the Festival de Raicilla, Mezcal y Cerveza Artesanal (FERAMECE) (Raicilla, Mezcal and Craft Beer Festival).

Under the theme “Hijos del Agave” (Sons of the Agave), the event, which will take place at the impressive Marina Riviera Nayarit, promises to exceed attendees’ expectations with an irresistible blend of tradition, innovation, and entertainment.

Festival founders and directors Ali Modad González and Juan Manuel Castiglioni announced that this year, in addition to a wide selection of exquisite raicillas, mezcals and craft beers, there will be a diverse cultural program to complement the visitor experience.

In addition to guided tastings by renowned chefs and bartenders, the festival will feature a DJ zone for those who want to enjoy music while exploring the exhibitors’ offerings.

With steady growth, FERAMECE expects to welcome around 6,000 people in 2023, a significant increase from the 4,500 registered in the previous edition. One of the highlights of this edition will be the exciting Mixology Contest, coordinated by BEVA Club, which will challenge bartenders to create innovative cocktails based on agave distillates under the theme “Sabores de México” (Flavors of Mexico).

The festival begins on Saturday at 2:00pm and continues Sunday at the same time, with free admission on both days. Visitors are encouraged to bring a new or gently used toy to be donated to a good cause through DIF Bahía de Banderas.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”
Bernhard Güth
Chef and partner

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”
