Fall is for feasting! Those who love food won’t want to miss the ultimate culinary experience, Puerto Vallarta’s annual Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica. The much-anticipated epicurien event, in its 10th year, will take place October 14 -18 and will feature 48 chefs, who collectively boast 14 Michelin Stars and 18 Soles Repsol, as well as several renowned chefs from Mexico and Latin America.

The culinary celebration, which coincides with Puerto Vallarta's 100th anniversary and the Riviera Nayarit's 10th anniversary festivities, will include multiple days of activities, samplings and workshops, ranging from wine tastings and pairing dinners, cooking demonstrations and the Gastronomikids program, which began in 2016 as part of the event’s social responsibility program to support disadvantaged children by nurturing an appreciation for gastronomy. Attendees can also explore the expo area and enjoy expert panels, among other programming.

This year’s Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica will honor the career of Susana Palazuelos, who has dedicated her life to the culinary arts, and will include the attendance of Chef Inés Páez Nin, also known as "Chef Tita," who participated on MasterChef Dominican Republic as a judge.
