It is now official….
The 13th annual San Pancho Music Festival for 2013 will be held Friday through Sunday, 02/22 through 02/24/2013 in San Francisco, Nayarit, Mexico. As in the past years, the event will be traditionally hosted in San Pancho on the last weekend of February. And, as always, because of the gracious contributions of the performing artists, there is no charge to the public.
The Music Festival is celebrating its 13th year in San Pancho. It will feature performing artists from the region of Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, as well as musicians from the United States and Latin America. The Festival has progressively grown from the original concept of a backyard venue of a local resident in 2001.

The fun will begin 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 soon be published on this website as details are worked out. Please revisit this site for more details on the performances and scheduled times.

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 is now better suited for the ever increasing crowds drawn to the community celebrations and festivals.
The 2013 Music Festival will return to Plaza del Sol for the duration of the 3 day event. 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.
