“We’re going to start changing things around a bit,” said Ramiro González, one of the organizers. “This year we’re finishing up the themed events with the participation of the community and next year we’ll be holding the festival together with guest countries and states.”
This year, Culture Week lasts from December 12-17, with a daily activity held every evening. There was a photography expo on Saturday detailing the 10 years of the Colectivo San Pancho in the Bodega 3; on Sunday there was a surfing tournament (the only event that took place during the morning) and on Monday the Soccer Cup will be held at the Unidad Deportiva.
On Tuesday the San Pancho Turtle Camp will showcase sand sculptures celebrating one million liberated turtles; an homage to Frank D. Smith will be held on Wednesday on the beach; on Thursday there will be a ceviche tasting on the boardwalk; and on Friday there will be a Christmas Festival in the Entre Amigos Community Center.
The stage productions will take place on December 18-20 from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Plaza del Sol. There are over 20 different presentations to be enjoyed in the Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit including dance, music, circus acts and theater.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) has been a consistent supporter of this festival, which helps promote diversity, harmony, respect, togetherness, support, learning, growth, development, family, talent and other values through art.
