The show will be filled with garden and floral related demonstrations, activities, and stands featuring vendors from all over the Vallarta area.

Academy Awards Movie Screenings - Monday through Saturday 
Join the Democrats Abroad Costa Banderas for the week of Academy Awards nominated movies to begin nightly on February 22 and continuing until March 1, culminating on March 2 with live-streaming of the Gala Oscar Night.

The venue for the screenings will be Paradise Community Center in Old Town Vallarta and the shows begin at 7:00 pm. Doors open at 5:00, so arrive early to take advantage of PCC's great food and beverage court.
La Cruz Senior Citizen Benefit - Wednesday 
On Wednesday, February 26th at 7:00 pm, Philo’s Bar/Restaurant & Music Club will host a fundraising benefit for the La Cruz Senior Center (Tercer Edad) featuring All You Eat Eat Ribs, Music, Entertainment and Raffle Prizes.

Proceeds from your 200 peso ticket will be used to support the La Cruz Senior Center’s annual operating budget.

This year's entertainment will be "Luna Rumba," a very popular Latin, Cuban & Jazz fusion band, and "The La Cruz Folkloric Dance Troupe."

National Charro Championship - Thursday through Sunday
What could be more fun than a Mexican Rodeo?

The 12th edition of the National Charro Championship is about to begin and is expected to be the best Charro festivity in the region.

Included in the program are five of the six finalists of last year's tournament, where the winner was Rancho El Eden followed by Rancho La Biznaga, Los Tres Potrillos, Camino Real de Colima, Tequila Hacienda Vieja and Tequila Don Roberto, but any of the other 19 entries could provide a surprise upset.

As part of the Organizing Committee, Ibarria Armando Urrutia, promises "no bad days" in the four day Charro Championship to be held from February 27 through March 2, 2014.

Banderas Bay Jazz Allstars at PCC - Friday 
The Banderas Bay Jazz Allstars are set to launch their third season exclusively on the Paradise Stage and will be performing most Friday evenings until April 4, 8:00 until 10:00 pm.

Their extremely popular concerts managed to smash our attendance records all last season!

Come and find out why everyone comes back to experience this amazing band over and over again.

Queen Coronation at San Blas Carnival - Saturday 
During a recent press conference, the Board of Directors of the San Blas Carnival announced that this year’s event will be celebrated from February 8th through March 4th. This festival has 104 years of history to its name and was reinstated four years ago.

This is a very unique carnival in Nayarit thanks to its music, the parties, the parades, the costumes, and the cultural and artistic events. One of the main objectives of the Hotel and Motel Association is to promote its traditions, which also serves to stimulate the economy.

Oscar Gala at Paradise Community Center - Sunday 
The fun starts early with a complimentary glass of bubbly, yummy hors d'oeuvres, red carpet interviews, professional photo-taking and conviviality, beginning at 5:30 pm when the doors open on Sunday, March 2. (Be forewarned, those who tarry may miss out on celebrity sightings, so punctuality is a priority!)

A multi-course buffet dinner, catered by chef extraordinaire Kathy Overly, follows the cocktail hour mingling, allowing plenty of time to dine and schmooze before settling in to watch this year's exciting awards ceremony on the Center's huge overhead screen.

There's a lot more going on in Vallarta-Nayarit this week, so check out our Events Calendar.

Another way to spend some very worthwhile time in Vallarta-Nayarit is to volunteer at one of the Banderas Bay non-profits that will welcome you with open arms. It will make you feel good too! You will see the tabs above for all the catagories.
