The Social Event of the Season in Lo De Marcos

February 6, 2017

Lo De Marcos, Nayarit, Mexico - It's time to get excited as we welcome the return of The Taste of Lo de Marcos for its Fourth Annual Fundraising Event.

The Taste of Lo De Marcos will be held Sunday, February 19, 2017 with a Kermes (a party to raise funds) from 3:00 until 8:00 pm at the Centro de Fiestas Los Delfines, Luis Echeverria #9, Lo de Marcos, Bahía de Banderas, (just east of the town plaza). This is the same location that hosts The Tianguis Lo De Marcos every Saturday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm.

On February 19, the Centro de Fiestas will be transformed for this Gala Event - The 4th Annual Taste of Lo De Marcos!

Hang on to your hats folks, this is going to be an event to enjoy! A tip to the wise... your dancing shoes might also be called for. From 3:30 until closing there will be LIVE music, with a Special VIP Section where seats may be reserved in advance for just $100.00 pesos each.

Caravane will open with World music from 3:30 to 5:30 pm, followed by the talented Rumba Flamenco Guitar duo, Latcho and Andrea, aka 'The Blond Gypsies,' who will delight the crowd from 6:00 until 8:00. Latcho and Andrea's wild, untamed Gypsy style has been compared to The Gipsy Kings, Ottmar Liebert, Jesse Cook and Willie and Lobo.

In addition to the music, the event features foods from restaurants located in the Pueblo of Lo De Marcos with meals and snacks ranging from casual to Five Star dining and Artisanal Booths with unique handcrafted items for purchase.

This year, Taste is proud to feature an extensive selection of handicrafts from Artesanías Ometepec who will make this trip from their home state of Guerrero to share with all of Riviera Nayarit the unique crafts indigenous to their area.

The proceeds of the event will be donated equally to The Amigos de Lo de Marcos A.C., who provide service and funding for many of the non-profit groups in this coastal town; and to Citizens Actions Committee of Lo De Marcos, which is responsible for organizing the traditional and cultural events of the year - such as religious festivities and government holidays. The Comité de Acción Ciudadana is essentially the body that is responsible for the social events of the town which are intended for the public's benefit. The group's President, Juan Ventura, is grateful for the support given to the Pueblo of Lo De Marcos by The Taste of Lo De Marcos event.

The event is planned and organized by Galvan Real Estate and Services each year in order to bring more attention to the town and to facilitate the donations that continue to keep Lo De Marcos the jewel that it is. Luis Armando Contreras Galván, Broker of Galván Real Estate and Services is pleased to support the fine work of the Amigos Group, with whom he currently serves as the groups Vice President, and The Citizens Action Committee. Each of these entities work to promote and preserve the unparalleled and unspoiled beauty of Lo De Marcos. "We want this event to be a sense of pride for the Community and we look forward to an even stronger attendance this year," Luis Armando said.

Event Sponsors include NovaMar Insurance, Galvan Real Estate and Services and the Riviera Nayarit CVB, who all look forward to welcoming you to the event.

"The 4th Annual Taste of Lo De Marcos promises to be a fun filled and entertaining event, so mark Sunday, February 19th from 3:00 to 8:00 pm on your calendar to make sure you don't miss it," Contreras added.

We encourage you all to come out to support this worthy cause and have a whole lot of fun at the same time. Reservations for seating can be made in advance by emailing galvanrealestate4(at), or calling (327) 275-0233.
