Gastronomy and Competition

In the heart of the festival, the competition for the title of Best Griller of the Vallarta Grill Festival 2024 took place with great enthusiasm. With the participation of renowned chefs and restaurants, each one presented their best version of roast meats, from traditional northern cuts to sophisticated Argentine preparations. The event was judged by a distinguished panel of chefs from the Vatel Club of Puerto Vallarta, led by chef Thierry Blouet.

Fun for all the family

It wasn’t just about eating. The festival provided entertainment for all attendees, from inflatable play areas for the little ones to tuna snoring demonstrations for the adults. In addition, you could enjoy a special area with a small farm where children and adults interacted with farm animals, adding a country touch to the festive atmosphere.

Cultural and Musical Activities

Music and cultural performances also played a crucial role in the festival. Puerto Vallarta’s Xiutla folkloric ballet, for example, offered shows that highlighted the region’s rich cultural tradition, perfectly complementing the atmosphere of the event.
