Luis Jesús Escoto Martínez, director of the Institute of Culture, accompanied by the raicilla businessman, Jorge Luis Carbajal Díaz, revealed the details of this festival that is being held in this city for the sixth time and which seeks to establish itself as a promoting event for raicilla, which in 2019 it received the protection of the appellation of origin, by the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI).

He explained that on the 17th will be the gala with all the participating raicilleros and the presentation of a promotional video that was documented from previous editions with stories from the producers. He added that the traditional and artisan elaboration of the raicilla are elements that make it belong to the cultural patrimony of the state and the institute in his charge is committed to promoting and protecting this patrimony.

Jorge Luis Carbajal highlighted that it is a very attractive event for raicilleros where they will be able to exhibit their products and give their brands a tasting to promote them, and pointed out that there is increasing interest from producers in participating and educating the public on its roots.

He thanked the municipal government of Puerto Vallarta and the Vallartense Institute of Culture for continuing to promote and preserve this legacy, which also represents an opportunity for visitors to interact with artisan producers and learn about the process of this traditional drink.
