Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - What started modestly up the Rio Cuale five years ago is now Puerto Vallarta's premier outdoor art show. And River of Arte 2016 on December 4th promises to be the best yet. Mark the date on your calendar, so you don't miss it!
More than 60 of Mexico's most talented artists will be exhibiting at Oscar's Restaurant on La Isla Cuale. Admission is free, with proceeds from art, food and silent auction sales to benefit the Puerto Vallarta's Colina Spay and Neuter Clinic.
Staffed by volunteers and funded by donations, the clinic provides free sterilization for pets and street animals, helping to prevent unnecessary suffering of unwanted animals and keeping Puerto Vallarta's streets clear of strays.
"Each year the River of Arte event has grown and this year's will be better than ever," says Carolina Archer, committee chair and event founder. "As Puerto Vallarta's #1 art show, River of Arte 2016 on December 4th is a don't-miss event."
Guests at River of Arte 2016 can expect to enjoy an elegant afternoon of art, local entertainment highlighting Mexican culture, wonderful refreshments from Oscar's, raffles, and a silent auction of great gifts donated by Puerto Vallarta's most generous local merchants. Entertainers include:
• Brittany Kingery, a tropical folk rock singer and recording artist of Puerto Vallarta Act II fame, who just returned from a six-month U.S. tour.
• Los Bailadores del Jorullo, a traditional dance troupe
• Los Polvitos de Jalisco, a Youth Mariachi group
