Join Mikki every Friday, 4:00 pm, at the Palm Cabaret & Bar in Old Town Vallarta for Shades of the Blues.

This show is a stroll down memory lane presenting the history of the blues dating back to over 100 years, but also the emotions invoked by these songs.

Waterside Art Show Nuevo Vallarta - Saturday 

For the fourth consecutive year the Saturday Waterside Art Shows along the Marina Nuevo Vallarta boardwalk are being set up, ready to present local art all throughout the high season in order to reinforce cultural tourism in the Riviera Nayarit.

Every Saturday from 9:00 am to noon there will be a lineup of mostly local artists preparing painting and sculpture installations, thus creating a tourist attraction for the region.

Where to Watch the Super Bowl - Sunday 

If you happen to be in Puerto Vallarta or Riviera Nayarit on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2015, we've put together a sampler of sports bars and restaurants around Banderas Bay that will be hosting Super Bowl parties as the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks go head to head for the Lombardi Trophy.

Super Bowl XLIX has all the elements of what could be one of the most memorable title games in league history.

The Seattle Seahawks' dominant defense and scrappy quarterback Russell Wilson go head-to-head with the New England Patriots' mysterious head coach Bill Belichick and future Hall of Fame signal-caller Tom Brady.

You'll want to be in your seat by at least 5:00 pm CT (Vallarta-Nayarit Time). Kick-off is 5:30.

Voice of Vallarta Competition - Sunday 

Act II Entertainment has spent the summer and after hundreds of auditions they have narrowed the field to 24 of the best.

The reality show competition season opener was on December 7 and will continue every Sunday at 8:00 pm until the big closing night on April 19, 2015 hosted once again by Juan Pablo Hernandez who turns SPANGLISH into an art form!

Farmers Markets in Vallarta-Nayarit - Every day of the week 

You'll see on our Events Calendar that there is at least one Farmers Market every day of the week in different locations around the Bay.
