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.

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“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.”
