Brittany Kingery at Act II - Monday

Every Monday evening, Brittany will bring her sweet, soaring voice and all-live band, appearing as a HEADLINE singer on the Red Room Stage. Originally from Washington state, now residing in Vallarta, her critically-acclaimed original and cover songs have been inspired by her experiences and life here in Mexico! She has also earned quite a reputation with huge accolades from her many fans of Troprock and Acoustic music.

Performances every Monday until April 24 at 7:30 pm.

Free Malecon Sculpture Walking Tour - Tuesday

Gary Thompson, owner of Galeria Pacifico, conducts a FREE Malecon Sculpture Walking Tour in downtown Puerto Vallarta every Tuesday morning through mid-April.

The tour begins promptly at 9:30 am at the north end of the Malecon in front of the Millennium sculpture which is next to the Hotel Rosita.

The 2-hour tour usually commences with artist Mathis Lidice describing and discussing his inspiration for the massive landmark sculpture Millennium. After about 15 minutes the art walk continues on to the next sculpture with interesting discussion taking place in front of each bronze statue.

This is the final tour of this season.

Elvis Tribute at Dz Route 66 Diner - Tuesday

Rob has performed many of Elvis' songs so often, he has the delivery and moves down pat. Rob growls on the lowest notes and if you close your eyes, you murmur: Is Elvis back again?

You are able to see Rob Knight at D'z Diner every Tuesday at 7:00 pm. Consider coming early for some tasty food.

Downtown Vallarta Art Walk - Wednesday

Earth Day at Botanical Gardens - Saturday and Sunday

Every day is Earth Day at the Vallarta Botanical Garden where we celebrate the natural wonders of our planet, especially its floristic diversity. Nonetheless, it doesn’t hurt to make some extra noise about this during the official international celebration on April 22.

We’re taking this one step further through a weekend of activities for you to enjoy. We hope you can join us in person for our special Earth Day Weekend celebration!

Bucerias Oyster Festival - Sunday

Party on the beach like a Banderas Bay local at the 17th Annual Bucerías Oyster Festival on Sunday, April 23rd, beginning at 5:00 pm and serving up 5,000 fresh-shucked oysters on the half-shell, ceviche, live mariachi music, a beauty pageant, and starlit boat parade, all totally free.

Considered a delicacy by foodies around the world, oysters are the last seafood treat you might expect to be free. Only when you visit our neighbor village known as the “Place of Divers” during the 17th Annual Bucerías Oyster Festival, they are just that. Honoring the end of oyster season in El Punto Beach, it’s quickly become one of the most treasured food festivals in Vallarta-Nayarit all year, equally beloved by locals and visitors alike.
