Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The value of "Unity" was the banner theme of Vallarta Pride 2015, held from May 17-25 in our destination. And it was precisely this unity that managed to create such a highly successful third edition of the most important annual gay pride festival in the region.
The Organizing Committee wishes to extend its deepest gratitude to all who participated so enthusiastically and to all of the event sponsors.
Undoubtedly, the most representative and emotional event of this festival was the Grand Vallarta Pride Parade, that saw the participation of more than 10 thousand people marching and enjoying the Party at the Park Lazaro Cardenas, which was headed by acclaimed DJ José Spinnin with performances by DJ Marko, Diamante Negro, Diva Divine, Las Gemelas de Vallarta, Juan Pablo Hernandez, Victoria Volkoba, Loyola, Luis Roberto Perez and, directly from Spain, La Prohibida.
Undoubtedly, all this effort would not have been possible without the participation and support of the Puerto Vallarta Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the Department of Transit, the cleaning crew and, of course, of all nationals and foreigners who supported the committee in organizing the event.
