Navy Day (June 1)
A grand military parade will take over the historic Puerto de San Blas, Rincón de Guayabitos and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle by land and by sea, in order to commemorate the armed forces that protect and serve the Mexican nation.
56th Annual San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament (June 1-5)
One of the Riviera Nayarit’s signature events, the San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament celebrates its 55th year of adrenaline-pumping moments for lovers of deep-sea fishing. http://www.clubdepescadeportivatepic.com/.
Guayabitos Motofiesta (June 3-5)
This event was born of the desire to give motorcycle enthusiasts a place where they can show off their spectacular machines to the general public and enjoy time together. http://www.motofiestaguayabitos.com/#.
VW Riviera Fest (June 19)
La Cruz de Huanacaxtle is another magnet for classic and modified Volkies. Over 150 vehicles will be displayed at the Marina Riviera Nayarit during this family-friendly event. https://www.facebook.com/clubwagenvolks/likes.
Batalla de Santos in Mexcaltitán (June 29)
This patron saint feast commemorating saints Peter and Paul includes one of the most iconic traditional ceremonies on the Isla de Mexcaltitán, the birthplace of Mexican heritage: a pilgrimage that emulates the Mexicas, or Aztecs, who left Aztlán to establish the great city of Tenochtitlán. http://www.santiago-ixcuintla.gob.mx/.
Texas Music Festival (TBD)
This Texas-sized cultural and musical festival returns, bringing with it dozens of Texan artists and plenty of visitors who flock to Nuevo Vallarta to celebrate the traditions of the Lone Star State.
