Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The 10th annual Riverfest will wrap up a decade to remember! Set to be held on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, February 27, 2022 at El Rio BBQ, this final Riverfest event will be a time to enjoy and reflect on the music of the musicians who have consistently given of themselves and provide top quality entertainment. So many memories have been made!
All of you who have previously attended have given so much help to the children with disabilities from Pasitos de Luz who have benefited each year and will once again benefit from the proceeds. We look forward to seeing you again and to meeting first time attendees!
What started as a small and humble event in 2012 has grown with each year. This year, we will once again be returning to our roots and the event will see changes to reflect the world we live in. It will be a much smaller event by advance ticket for guest comfort with reserved seating.
We are thrilled to announce our event sponsor Mayan Rental! John and Linda Jameson have been long time supporters of Pasitos de Luz and, this year, they have stepped up to sponsor the final Riverfest event in order to help the kids even more.
What: Benefit for Pasitos de Luz and the event of the year! Live music (4 bands each day to be announced later in January), cash bar and menu, silent auctions, 50/50 tickets and more!
When: Saturday February 26 and Sunday February 27, 2022, 12:30-5:30 pm each day
