San Pancho Patron Saint Festival

If you’re looking for an authentic taste of Mexican culture, head north of Puerto Vallarta to the charming village of San Francisco, Nayarit, where from September 25 through October 4 this small town, better known as ‘San Pancho,’ has been celebrating a nine-day festival honoring its namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi, for over 40 years.

The people of San Pancho are happy to share their celebrations with family, friends, neighbors, and fascinated tourists. Come enjoy the dances and celebrations with a unique flair only found in San Pancho, “The Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit.”

Every day of the nine-day festival is a celebration with locals and visitors alike enjoying lots of food, drinks, music, rodeos, parades, and colorful traditions like “The Bull,” a spectacular headdress equipped with skyrockets that are lit as a “runner” moves through the crowd; and “The Torch,” which is carried from a nearby town by a group of runners who are welcomed with music, shouts, and confetti.
