It’s time to get excited as we welcome the return of The Taste of Lo De Marcos for its Fourth Annual Fundraising Event in Lo De Marcos.
The Taste of Lo De Marcos will be held on Sunday, the 19th of February 2017 with a Kermes (a party to raise funds) from 3:00 until 8:00 pm at the Centro de Fiestas Los Delfines, Luis Echeverria #9, Lo de Marcos, Riviera Nayarit, (just east of the town plaza). This is the same location that hosts The Tianguis Lo De Marcos each Saturday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm.
The event will feature LIVE music from 3:30 until closing with a Special VIP Section where seats may be reserved in advance for just 100.00 pesos each. Caravane will open with World music from 3:30 to 5:30.
The talented Rumba Flamenco Guitar duo of Latcho and Andrea will delight the crowd from 6:00 until 8:00. Latcho and Andrea’s wild, untamed Gypsy style has been compared to The Gipsy Kings, Ottmar Liebert, Jesse Cook and Willie and Lobo.
Hang on to your hats folks, this is going to be an event to enjoy! A tip to the wise … your dancing shoes might also be called for.
In addition to the music, the event features food from restaurants located in the Pueblo of Lo De Marcos with meals and snacks ranging from casual to Five Star Dining and several Artisanal Booths with unique handcrafted items for purchase.
This year, Taste is proud to feature an extensive selection of handicrafts from Artesanías Ometepec who will make this trip from their home state of Guerrero to share with all of Riviera Nayarit the unique crafts indigenous to their area.
The proceeds of the event will be donated equally to The Amigos de Lo de Marcos, A.C. who provide service and funding for many of the non-profit groups in this coastal town and to Citizens Actions Committee of Lo De Marcos who is responsible for organizing the traditional and cultural events of the year — such as religious festivities and government Holidays. The “Comité de Acción Ciudadana” as it is called in Spanish, is essentially the body that is responsible for the social events of the town which are intended for the public’s benefit. The group´s President, Juan Ventura is grateful for the support given to the Pueblo of Lo De Marcos by The Taste of Lo De Marcos event.
We encourage you all to come on out to support this worthy cause and have a whole lot of fun at the same time. Reservations for seating can be made in advance by emailing GalvanRealEstate4@gmail.com or calling (327) 275-0233.
The event is planned and organized by Galvan Real Estate and Services each year in order to bring more attention to the town and to facilitate the donations that continue to keep Lo De Marcos as the jewel that it is.
Luis Armando Contreras Galván, Broker of Galván Real Estate and Services is pleased to support the fine work of the Amigos Group, with whom he currently serves as the group's Vice President, and The Citizens Action Committee. Each of these entities both work to promote and preserve the unparalleled and unspoiled beauty of Lo De Marcos. Luis Armando states ¨We want this event to be a sense of pride for the Community and we look forward to an even stronger attendance this year.¨
The Event Sponsors include NovaMar Insurance, Galvan Real Estate and Services and Riviera Nayarit who will each be present at the event and look forward to welcoming you!
