It is now official….
The Festival Committee has announced that 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.

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 will be published on this website as details are worked out. Please revisit this site for more details on the performances and scheduled 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.
The year 2013 also marked an important milestone in the history of the Festival when a second stage was added to the event. This resulted in a smoother transition between acts, and allowed a larger number of artists to perform through the 3-day event. Overall the audience was rewarded with an enhanced listening experience. Public feedback regarding the Festival’s success and organization, particularly the second stage, has been very enthusiastic.
