Vallarta Pride. Associations, companies and the entire LGBT community have joined together again to organize this event that celebrates the lifestyle diversity of our city in a 7-day festival that will offer arts and culture events, concerts, entertainment, films, fun, lots of partying and our fabulous Pride Parade. Our main events have a small donation and are non-profit to once again show the world the best of our accepting and vibrant community. It is that level of acceptance which has made Puerto Vallarta recognized worldwide as an LGBT mecca, hosting national and international gay visitors and creating a sophisticated culture that is an important artistic, professional, altruistic and economic contributor to the community. This cultural heritage was adopted by the Vallarta Pride Organizing Committee, which works in conjunction with public and private partnerships and to make our city a player on the world stage of LGBT celebrations.
Vallarta Pride works towards a future without discrimination where we all have equal rights under fair and equal law. We believe we can achieve this through the LGBT events that inspire, commemorate and celebrate our community.
