Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - On Friday, November 29, 2019, and every other Friday from 6:00 to 10:00 pm through April 3, 2020, the Zona Romantica will come to life as locals and tourists alike head over to Basilio Badillo to do the South Side Shuffle, the only ongoing party of its kind in all of Puerto Vallarta.
Filled with art galleries, shops and boutiques that offer everything from fine art and Mexican pottery to folk art, jewelry and resort wear, Basilio Badillo has been known as one of the best shopping areas in Vallarta for almost 30 years.
Now in its tenth year, the South Side Shuffle transforms the always bustling street into a sensory delight. Every other Friday from 6 to 10 pm, you will find friends, neighbors and musicians while wandering up and down Basilio Badillo and stopping in to visit the participating businesses that offer refreshments and a festive shopping environment.
Although there are many galleries along the route, it is not an art walk. Nevertheless, participating galleries, like Galleria Dante, the largest and most eclectic art gallery in Puerto Vallarta, will be showcasing works by a variety of artists throughout the season.
Along the way you can stop for a bite to eat, a cocktail and conversation, or to dance in the street to live music performed by some of the best musicians in the Banderas Bay area. What is more, it is safe to walk in the Romantic Zone at night, which means locals and visitors are at ease while enjoying the only ongoing party of its kind in all of Puerto Vallarta.
The fiesta hits the street every other Friday from 6-10 pm, so come on out and enjoy cocktails, live music, and "Shuffling" between participating businesses on Vallarta's best shopping street - Basilio Badillo.
In addition to the businesses that participate in the South Side Shuffle, there are many other wonderful shops, restaurants and galleries in the vicinity that are not to be missed while you are out Doin' the South Side Shuffle.
