The 14th annual San Pancho Music Festival will be held Friday, Feb. 28th through Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 in San Francisco, Nayarit, Mexico. As in past years, the event traditionally takes place on the last weekend of February. And, as always, because of the gracious contributions of the performing artists, there is still no charge to the public.
The 2014 San Pancho Music Festival will feature performing artists from the region, as well as musicians from the United States, Canada, and Latin America. The Festival has evolved markedly from its original beginnings in the backyard of a local resident in 2001. This year the Festival is pleased to welcome back a number of artists that proved to be crowd favorites from prior years. Several new and exciting performers are appearing for the first time in the Festival’s 14 year history, and altogether they promise an exciting lineup for this year’s event. Click on Event Info to learn about the origins of the Music Festival and how it has grown over the years.
The fun and music begins at 5pm each day, with performances up until 11pm each night (although it isn’t uncommon for artists to continue playing to an enthusiastic late night crowd). A schedule of performing artists and show times is listed below, with links to the biographies of each artist. Or you can click on 2014 Schedule for the current lineup and schedule performance times.

The Music Festival will be held in Plaza del Sol – across from the church. In early 2012 Plaza del Sol was remodeled and it’s facilities updated. A new stage was completed to enhance the Plaza as an entertainment venue. Public restrooms were modernized, the portico was remodeled, and new landscape installed. The Plaza was thus better suited for the larger crowds drawn to the 2013 Music Festival.
Directions to the venue and a street map of San Pancho can be accessed via Event Info, or by clicking this link: Directions to the Plaza.
