Five Events to Tempt You to the Riviera Nayarit in September

Marc Murphy - CVB Riviera Nayarit
September 12, 2019

This September, Mexico’s Pacific Treasure offers a calendar filled with cultural, culinary, and athletic activities, not to mention social events and plenty of Mexican tradition.

These events are all a result of the actions taken over the course of the year by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB), and the different organizers to attract more visitors to the destination.

Read on for a look at what Mexico’s Pacific Treasure offers visitors, residents, and locals this month:

Independence Day Festivities (September 15 – 16)

Celebrating the Independence Day festivities is a very Mexican tradition—and the Riviera Nayarit is front and center when it comes to “echar el grito,” or give the ceremonial cry. The festivities begin on the night of the 15th with the Independence Day Cry, a ceremony held in nearly every single plaza in the towns dotting the coast, along with fireworks and verbenas. The celebration continues on the 16th with a military and sports parade to commemorate another year of Mexico’s Independence.

9th Meetings & Events Institute (September 23 – 28)

The Riviera Nayarit is hosting the Meetings & Events Institute 2019 from September 23-28, the most innovative training event for the Meetings Industry. Presented by ConvencioneS Latinoamérica magazine and endorsed by SITE Mexico, it offers professionals from the tourism and meetings industries, students, and docents the chance to pick a specialty for certification.

The event is held at the Hard Rock Hotel in Nuevo Vallarta and, as a special incentive, the Meetings & Events Institute and the Riviera Nayarit CVB is offering a special nightly rate for those who register for any of the four modules using this link.

VII Riviera Fest (September 28 – 29)

The VII Riviera Fest—a fantastic exhibit of Volkswagen vehicles organized by the Riviera Nayarit Wagen Volks Club—is happening on September 28-29 at La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. The event is considered one of the top beach events of its kind and is endorsed by the ANCVM (National Association of Volkswagen Clubs of Mexico). For more information, visit Riviera Fest.

Feast of St. Francis (September 26 – October 04)

The Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit celebrates its patron saint festivities in honor of St Francis of Assisi from September 26 – October 4. During that time the Plaza del Sol and the entire town will brim with athletic, religious, artistic, and cultural activities. As tradition dictates, there’s a raffle for the Friendship Torch and then the novena begins in honor of the Patron Saint.

11th Vallarta – Nayarit Gastronómica (September 29 – October 3)

Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit are getting decked out from September 29 through October 3, 2019, to celebrate the eleventh edition of this event along with 36 renowned chefs. Between them the chefs have received multiple Michelin Stars and Soles Repsol, as well as top spots in The 50 Best Restaurants and Top Chefs. Sommeliers, mixologists, and world-class speakers are also going to be present.
