Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon, the boardwalk alongside the Pacific Ocean, will once again be the site of Mexico’s only Celtic Festival of its kind. The music of pipes and drums mixed with the sounds of the surf and the swaying of palm trees as pipe bands march in a parade to delight of onlookers will be just one scene of the festival in March.
The event’s second visit to Puerto Vallarta has now been given the official name “Celtic Vallarta”.
With last year’s success of the festival, Mexico welcomed a new culture experience from the Celtic Nations; Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Ireland, Galicia, and Asturias.
Nearly a hundred pipers and drummers along with 3,000 visitors to the area from the US, Canada, and Europe, are expected to attend the Celtic Music Festival.
In addition to music, the festival will welcome the culture of film, arts, and music from the Celtic Nations.
Sergio Zepeda, Director of the Vallarta Institute of Culture, welcomed the announcement from organizers and said the city was prepared to provide facilities and services to further strengthen the only Celtic Music Festival in Mexico.
More details will be released by Vallarta Daily News as the become available.
