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.”
