From April 27 – May 7, Puerto Vallarta will host the 11th Festival Vallarta Azteca del Folclor Internacional, an event celebrating folkloric dance expressions from all over Mexico and Latin America. This year’s edition will feature dance troupes from 14 Mexican states—including Jalisco, Oaxaca, Michoacan, Nayarit, Sinaloa, Baja California and Chihuahua—and 4 international companies—originally from Colombia, Peru, Chile and Bolivia.

An opening day parade will be held from the Malecon to the Agustin Flores Contreras municipal sports complex on April 27, starting at 6:00pm. Performances will be taking place in three venues: the Agustin Flores Contreras municipal sports complex, Los Arcos amphitheater and Parque Hidalgo. A complete schedule of events can be found on the festival’s Facebook Page.

The aim of the festival is to create bonds of peace and brotherhood between the groups and countries involved, as well as providing entertainment and cultural events for the Puerto Vallarta citizens and visitors. The festival is endorsed by the International Council of Organizations of Folklore Festivals and Folk Art (CIOFF), UNESCO partner organization.

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
