It is with great pride that I announce that the 24th Annual Banderas Bay Regatta is scheduled to take place March 9-13, 2016.

Join us for this fun filled week of music, good food, great camaraderie, and great racing.

Chacala Music and Art Festival - Thursday through Sunday

Something Magical & Musical is happening at the heart of Riviera Nayarit, in the crown jewel village of Chacala-by-the-sea … a four day & night celebration of music … a festival … an unforgettable bringin’-in-the-spring fling!

One night in March, 2012 at a Friday night roof-top reception, a group of attendees began to break out in song, regaling the crowd spontaneously with music from Broadway Musicals. The group began to realize that Chacala might just be a perfect place to celebrate music and other arts: thus was borne the Chacala Music Festival.

This year, the Chacala Village Festival will take place from March 10-13, 2016.

Diva by Kim Kuzma at The Palm - Friday

Kim breaks out of her standard show design for the first time in an absorption in the music of Annie Lennox. Never before in her long successful career has Kim taken the stage with an accompanist and delivered a solid show of one singer's work. She revealed that since she was a little girl, this singer was her idol and she fashioned herself after her career. This wonderful singing star was her role model since Kim was a child in a trailer park in Dawson Creek, Canada. Annie unknowingly made Kim a singer, not a waitress or office worker. She grew to learn that her inner core was filled with the desire to sing tunes of varying types, though soulful blues was front and center.

Kim Kuzma will be performing "Diva" at the Palm Cabaret at 9:30 on March 11 & 18 with the final performance at 4:00 on March 22.

Bohemia Viva at the Palm Cabaret - Saturday

Puerto Vallarta’s favorite Argentinian singers, Luis Lujan and Andrea Mottura of Bohemia Viva! helped launch our 16th season at the Palm Cabaret with their signature sizzling Latin rhythms and sensual acoustic harmonies. Whether playing classic hits, or modern favorites, in both English and Spanish, Bohemia Viva! always brings the house down!

Bohemia Viva opened at the Palm Cabaret in Old Town Vallarta on November 19 with only two shows remaining for this season on March 12 and 19 at 7:00 pm.

Giselle Ballet Spring Concert - Sunday

The Puerto Vallarta Chamber Orchestra and the Youth Orchestra will join forces with the local Ballet School to bring the Spring Concert 2016.

Save the date of Sunday, March 13 at 7:00 pm for the Spring Concert presentation of the Giselle Ballet.  

The classic and romantic ballet of Giselle is a masterpiece of the romantic era and written by Adolphe Adam and is a beautiful story of love and tragedy which was first performed in Paris in 1841.
