A follow-up on last years’ successful event, Riviera Nayarit will welcome important musicians and dancers of international renown to participate in the Second Annual Mambo Fest, May 8 - 11. The event, sponsored by the State of Nayarit’s Tourism Office, along with Riviera Nayarit’s Conventions and Visitors Bureau, will take place at Marival Resort & Suites in Nuevo Vallarta.
“The event hopes to promote art and culture through several activities, including a massive free concert with three major salsa, cumbia and bachata artists,” commented Carlos Martínez, event organizer. Said concert will take place at Marina Riviera Nayarit on May 8, 7:30 pm, as a kickoff event. The following days will include choreography and dance workshops, along with social dancing opportunities for all.
“The event was very successful last year, with an average of 816 people attending daily,” Martínez added. “Our goal is to increase that number to 1,200 people in 2014.”
Participating artists will arrive from several countries, including the United States, Canada, England, Spain, Greece, Chile, Cuba and Mexico, of course. More information about costs and activities can be obtained by visiting www.salsamambofest.com.
