2nd Annual Taste of Nuevo Vallarta & 14th Annual Chili Cook-off

Richard Williams - Vallarta Yacht Club
November 8, 2014


On December 6, from 4:00 - 8:00 pm, the Marina Nuevo Vallarta malecon will be the location of the 2nd year of this great event.

Last year, over 400 people attended to sample the wonderful sample dishes provided by the participating restaurants and also tasting fantastic chili made by professional and non-professional contributors.

Attendees may purchase sample tickets for $10 pesos. Each ticket will allow a "sample" of chili or any of the other type of food offered. Attendees may also use tickets to purchase bottled water, soda, beer, wine and Margaritas.  Music will be provided.

Net proceeds will all go to charity, evenly split between Families at the Dump and the Navy League.

The Families at the Dump mission was formed with the objective: "to provide physical, educational, medical, spiritual and emotional support to the families living in the landfill or garbage dump in Puerto Vallarta or surrounding areas."

The Navy League of Puerto Vallarta arranges for gifts of health and educational supplies to be brought to PV via U.S. Navy and Coastguard services. They also organize work parties from visiting ships to do painting and maintenance at local orphanages and schools. The Navy League is a major participant in the Toys for Tots program.

Parking will be available at Marina Nuevo Vallarta and water taxis will be available from the Vallarta Yacht Club and Paradise Village.

Exhibitors are encouraged to sign up now. Last year we had over 40 booths, we hope to have more this year.

One of our most popular non-chili booths was Mr. Cream Restaurant featuring a sample of waffle with strawberries and whip cream - they are already on board again for this year.

This is one of the first opportunities of the season to expose your restaurant to hundreds of tourist and local residents.

Any questions can be directed by email to Rudy Trejo, Manager Vallarta Yacht Club 297-2222, or Dee Cockerham, Chairman 297-5001 or cell 322-150-0481.
