The 11th edition of the I Madonnari Festival is taking place in Puerto Vallarta this weekend, November 11-13, at the city’s Main Plaza. The colorful pavement art event brings together a variety of local and visiting artists to express themselves using chalk or pastels. Artists wishing to participate can sign up in four different categories according to their age, and winners in each category receive cash prizes. The overall winner receives the opportunity to represent Puerto Vallarta in a similar event that takes place in Santa Barbara, California—a sister city—with all expenses paid.

I Madonnari is a perfect opportunity for locals and visitors to spend some time around Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón, and taking in the talent required to create artistic paintings directly on the pavement. Last year’s event brought together 93 participants, and organizers expect to increase the number this weekend. The first recorded street-painting competition and ‘festival’ was held in London in 1906. Since then, important I Madonnari festivals have been taking place on a regular basis in may important tourist destinations, worldwide.

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want".

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination”.

“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”.
