Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

International Gourmet Festival Returns to Vallarta-Nayarit for Its 22nd Year

A lot has changed in Puerto Vallarta since the International Gourmet Festival started in 1994. The city on the Pacific Coast of Jalisco has become a top beach destination in Mexico and drawn thousands of U.S. and Canadian expatriates. The International Gourmet Festival is one of a handful of events that has put Puerto Vallarta on the map, and keeps people coming back year after year.

The 22nd edition of the Festival will take place Nov. 11 through 20 and extends from Puerto Vallarta along the Rivera Nayarit to Tepic, Nayarit.

A press conference at the Almara restaurant in the Juárez neighborhood of Mexico City gave a taste of what to expect for this year’s Festival. Marc Murphy, Director of the Tourism and Conventions Office of the Rivera Nayarit, said, “We use the palate as our best tourism promotion.” Agustín Álvarez Valdivia, General Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, said that Puerto Vallarta has distinguished itself as a culinary destination nationally and internationally, and is experiencing, “the best moments of its history.”

This year the festival will have invited chefs from ten countries at a variety of local hotels and restaurants. Each invited chef will host a “theme night” at a hotel, where they chose the menu, an offering that has been popular in recent years.

Over the course of the ten-day event, the organizers expect up to 20,000 people to attend the diverse functions.
