Diversity Day 2013 Western Hoedown

January 26, 2013

On this day we especially welcome our gay community and their friends to celebrate the joys of the Gardens together in a full day of fun. Many cities throughout the world host publicly-held Gay Pride events that are not only popular but also healthy economic blessings for those communities. At the Gardens we invite you to come together to celebrate our diverse natures—in nature! This event open to everyone 18 years old and older.

Take part in a variety of fabulous diversions leading up to our sundown Bonfire of the Vanities and Tea Dance with DJ Jesús spinning the grooves. Other activities include a River Jamboree, Dance Performances, Live Mariachi Music, Workshops, a Vendors’ Mart and Speed Dating! In light of this year’s theme, Western wear is encouraged but not at all necessary—however, those in Western costume will receive a special gift and be eligible for our “Handsomest Cowboy and Prettiest Cowgirl contests.” Your event entry fee includes round-trip bus transportation from Lázaro Cárdenas Park and a welcome cocktail upon arrival. Delicious food will be available for purchase, and the bar will be open all day at the Gardens’ world-famous Hacienda de Oro Restaurant.

Admission for Diversity Day is $250 pesos per person if purchased before January 10 and $300 pesos per person on or after that day. Vallarta Botanical Gardens Members do not receive complimentary entry on this day, but may purchase tickets at a 10% discount.
