- Celebrations include Navy Day, the Guayabitos Motofiesta, the festival surrounding the commemoration of the Batalla de Santos in Mexcaltitán, the RHA Festival and the 57th Annual San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Groups and Events Department recently announced the list of events on the Destination’s calendar for June, which will take place in different locations along the coast of the beautiful state of Nayarit.
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.
Guayabitos Motofiesta (June 16-18)
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.
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.
RHA Festival (June 30 – July 1)
Lovers of electronic music—particularly the house style—will surely enjoy this festival in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, which presents a stellar lineup headed by Green Velvet, Claptone, Dimitri From Paris and the Purple Disco Machine, with over a dozen additional Djs.
57th Annual San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament (TBD)
One of the Riviera Nayarit’s signature events, the San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament celebrates its 57th year of adrenaline-pumping moments for lovers of deep-sea fishing.
