2016 FMV Cup - Puerto Vallarta Race - The 2016 edition of the Vallarta Race was a tale of two races. As sailors reached the dock in Marina Vallarta, their stories emphasized the contrast between the two. The first race is the run from San Diego to Cabo which this year was like none other. The second race involves attempting to avoid the holes and minimize the light air that most boats encountered crossing the Sea of Cortez and approach to PV.
The annual 3-day Music Festival will be held Friday, Feb. 26th through Sunday, Feb. 28th in San Pancho's Plaza del Sol. The Festival features regional, national and international artists on two alternating stages providing continuous entertainment for the audience.
The event begins at 5pm each day, with performances up until 11pm each night. A wide variety of food and beverage will be available for purchase in and around the Plaza. A limited number of tables and chairs will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is recommended that visitors bring their own chairs or blankets.
The Festival began in 2001 in the backyard of a local resident, and has since grown into one of the most popular music events in the region featuring well over 25 groups and 100 musicians each year, that cover the gamut of musical genres, and traditions. The performers, organizers, and volunteers all donate their time and talents in order to make this event happen each year. It is this group spirit, along with the magical atmosphere of San Pancho, that has contributed to the town being recognized as the “Cultural Center of Riviera Nayarit".
We are excited to announce that this year's Festival will feature a number of new acts from the US, and Canada. The Festival welcomes Kansas City pop group, "Maria the Mexican," award winning Canadian jazz pianist, James Gelfand, from Montreal, Quebec, guitarist Todd Boston, from San Francisco, CA, and jazz guitarist Rolf Sturm from the NYC area, who will be accompanying vocalist Jenna Mammina, who graced the stage two years ago. The San Pancho based group "Panta Rei" will be performing for the first time on the Festival MainStage, along with the band, Mataviejitas.
Festival favorites this year include Jeff Oster, who will be playing tunes from his latest, Grammy Nominated, CD. Steve O'Connor will perform with a new group, the ever popular Tatewari, as will San Pancho's own Dave Fisher, "Frida's Eyebrow", and Geno Lamphiear. Saturday will feature a number of Mexican local favorites, hosted by Beto Gonzalez , including Fausto Robles, Los Compas, and Osvaldo, culminating in a dance party at 10pm with the Cumbia group, Huanacaxtle. Other guest artists who will be featured throughout the weekend include Martin Montenegro, Joe Hadlock, Tony Kovacic, Andy Crawford, Chas Eller, and more.
The Music Festival is supported by the generous donations of attendees, local residents, and businesses in San Pancho.

CD’s and merchandise will be for sale at the Festival, and 100% of the proceeds go directly to the performing artists.

Mark your calendars... the upcoming 3-day Music Festival will be held Friday, Feb. 27th through Sunday, Mar. 1st in San Pancho's Plaza del Sol. This year the Music Festival will feature performing artists from the region of Riviera Nayarit, as well as musicians from the United States, Canada and Latin America. In celebration of it's 15th year, the Music Festival is adding a 2nd stage in the Plaza.
The event will begin at 5pm each day, with performances up until 11pm each night.

Table and chairs will be available for those that arrive early. However, festival seating has been customary over the years, so it is recommended that the public bring their own chairs or blankets.
San Pancho’s Music Festival is a vibrant, eclectic expression of performing art traditionally held annually for 3 days during the last weekend of February. It began informally in 2001 as a backyard venue of a local resident, and by 2006 included some 116 performers. It has progressively grown ever since, attracting some of the most colorful musicians from around the world. The Festival has become a cultural tradition in San Pancho.
The Music Festival is entirely supported by the gracious contributions of local musicians and international recording artists, and by the local residents of San Pancho. Artists tell us they enjoy performing in the intimate venue and magical surroundings of San Pancho, and amazingly, without compensation. It is truly a wonderful balance of amateurs and professional performers coming together for 3 days to share an unforgettable and enriching musical experience in one of the most beautiful regions of Mexico. Donations are encouraged, but there is no intent for the Festival to profit from the performances. Additionally, proceeds from sales of music and video CD's go directly to the performing artists.
A schedule of performing artists and show times will soon be published on the Music Festival website. And with the new Facebook page, the public has two resources for the Festival news and information:
