Riverfest 2014 Promises Good Food and Great Music

February 28, 2014

Riverfest 2014 will run from 12-7 pm and promises to be a fantastic afternoon of entertainment featuring live bands, excellent BBQ (El Rio's speciality!), unique vendors, and loads of fun!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The 3rd Annual Riverfest is being held on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at El Rio BBQ to benefit the special needs children of Puerto Vallarta. Fancy the chance to unwind, enjoy some excellent live music AND support a fantastic local charity? Well, this is the event for you!

Riverfest 2014 will run from 12 noon to 7 pm and promises to be a fantastic afternoon of entertainment featuring live bands, excellent food (El Rio's speciality!), unique vendors, and loads of fun in a gorgeous venue along the River Cuale.

A star-studded line-up of musicians, including Arturo, Eulogio de la Cruz Carrillo (Huicholes), Kim Kuzma, Chris Kenny Band, Texas Embassy Blues Band, and Los Bambinos, will entertain you throughout the afternoon as you enjoy the natural beauty of El Rio BBQ's excellent riverside location - for a donation of $50 pesos, plus refreshment costs.

Proceeds from Riverfest 2014 will benefit Pasitos de Luz ('Little Steps of Light'), one of Puerto Vallarta's longest-established and most worthwhile non-profit organizations. Pasitos de Luz provides care for disabled children from low-income families and is a lifeline in the local community.

Come down to El Rio, grab a margarita and support a great cause! It's as simple as that.

Or you can choose to be a 'Benefactor for a Day,' and enjoy the benefits of the Patron Package for just $500 pesos. Limited tickets are available for this very special package, which includes:

Gate entry and Priority seating
A wonderful buffet provided by Barcelona Tapas (from 3 pm to 5 pm)
Unlimited non-alcoholic drinks throughout the day

This is a great way to extend your support to Pasitos de Luz and join in the fun. For these tickets please contact Barb Bremner at condo211(at) or (322) 223-0916.

El Rio BBQ Bar is located along the Rio Cuale in Paso Ancho, less than ten minutes from the Libramiento. Bus route #4 to Paso Ancho or Paso de Guayabo drops you right at the gate. Ask the driver if he's heading to Paso Ancho if you have any doubt. Taxis from Olas Altas or El Centro currently cost $50 pesos to El Rio BBQ Bar. Contact El RIO BBQ Bar directly at 322-222-2510.

Located in El Pitillal, Pasitos de Luz is a lifeline for the more than 140 families who rely on us to look after their children during the day. These children often suffer from acute physical and psychological illnesses and many are unable to enter the mainstream education system. We do not charge a single peso for our services. All the children are fed, rehabilitated and looked after at no cost to the parents. For more information, Click HERE or visit
