Festival Gourmet International Vallarta 2014, November 13 – 23

Festival Gourmet International Vallarta, the annual food and wine event that has been tempting the tastebuds of Banderas Bay area residents and visitors for years, returns to Puerto Vallarta this November 13 – 23rd.

Once a year, a star studded cast of national and international guest chefs come to Puerto Vallarta to share their expertise with the talented chefs from some of the finest restaurants in Puerto Vallarta and around Banderas Bay.

For those who are familiar with Puerto Vallarta’s annual gourmet festival, expect the same spectacular events: the inauguration cocktail to introduce the visiting chefs, the fantastic Sunday brunch with traditional Mariachi and the final gala event topped off with fireworks that light up the night sky.

But the best part of this 10-day event is that each participating restaurant hosts a guest master chef to create a festival all of its own – and that means you’ll have a multitude of unique opportunities to savor inspired world-class menus!

In addition, throughout the 10 day event selected restaurants host special Chef’s Table and Winemaker Dinner for a limited number of guests. Made memorable by magnificent gourmet menus paired with excellent wines, these intimate evenings offer diners the opportunity to get “up close and personal” with a favorite chef.


Puerto Vallarta’s annual International Festival Gourmet also offers you the opportunity to attend cooking classes, learn about wine pairing, taste the newest and best in both wines and tequila, and, of course, savor the flavors of Mexico – and the world – at some of the finest restaurants in the Banderas Bay region.

Do your palate a favor and visit this year’s Gourmet Festival in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. You won’t regret it. In fact, you’ll never forget it. Spaces go quickly, so early reservations are advised.
