What started modestly up the Rio Cuale five years ago is now one of Puerto Vallarta’s most sought after outdoor art show. On Sunday, December 4, over 60 of the region’s most talented artists will be exhibiting their works at Oscar’s Restaurant on Isla Rio Cuale. “Each year the River of Arte event has grown and this year’s will be better than ever,” says Carolina Archer, committee chair and event founder.

Admission is free, with proceeds from art, food and silent auction sales to benefit the Puerto Vallarta’s Colina Spay and Neuter Clinic.

Staffed by volunteers and funded by donations, the clinic provides free sterilization for pets and street animals, helping to prevent unnecessary suffering of unwanted animals and keeping Puerto Vallarta’s streets clear of strays.

Guests at River of Arte 2016 can expect to enjoy an elegant afternoon of art, local entertainment highlighting Mexican culture, wonderful refreshments from Oscar’s, raffles, and a silent auction of great gifts donated by Puerto Vallarta’s most generous local merchants.

Entertainers include:

  • Brittany Kingery, a tropical folk rock singer and recording artist of Puerto Vallarta Act II fame who just returned from a six-month U.S. tour
  • Los Bailadores del Jorullo, a traditional dance troupe
  • Los Polvitos de Jalisco, a Mariachi group

River of Arte is this Sunday, December 4, from Noon to 5 pm at Oscar’s Restaurant on Isla Rio Cuale. Admission is free for all.

"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."

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
Thierry Blouet
Café des Artistes

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”
