In its 16th edition, Madonnari 2024 returns to Puerto Vallarta, filling the city with a burst of color and creativity from February 9th to 11th, 2024. Organized by the Sister Cities Committee Puerto Vallarta-Santa Barbara and the municipal government, this ephemeral art event captivates both residents and visitors alike.

Unlike previous years, Madonnari moves to February in order to stand out among the multitude of events that take place in November. The Plaza de Armas will serve as a canvas for professional artists from Querétaro, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Estado de México, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Durango, and other places, competing for cash prizes and the coveted pass to the international competition in Santa Barbara.

Raúl Coultas, the festival director, shared the exciting evolution of Madonnari: “For the past 15 years, it was a local event to promote culture and art. This year, however, we introduced cash prizes and other incentives to increase artist participation.”

Registration is free and open to all interested parties via WhatsApp at 322 135-9854 or via email at moc.l1709584837iamg@17095848374202i1709584837ranno1709584837damla1709584837vitse1709584837f1709584837.

Madonnari 2024 promises to transform the Plaza de Armas into an ephemeral spectacle of beauty, showcasing the diversity and quality of the arts in Puerto Vallarta.

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
