More importantly, Pal Norte pays tribute to the roots and traditions of the city through its display of authentic local art and the delicious cuisine found at the event. Head over to the Pa’l Market, which features dozens of vendors selling a variety of Mexican arts and crafts, fashion and accessories, and much more. The Pa’la Botana is where you’ll find a mouthwatering assortment of local and international cuisine, with tasty treats to cater to all tastes and preferences. Unleash your inner child at Kermesse, a zone dedicated to crazy fun games and activities for all ages.
‘Come for the music, the food, or the fun – you won’t be disappointed because Pal Norte is as authentic a Mexican experience as you’ll get, with thrilling delights that will excite all the senses.’
Past events have featured Snoop Dogg, Foster The People, Two Door Cinema Club, and 50 Cent to name a few, plus Latin American artists including La Ley, Los Tigres del Norte, and Juanes. For the 2019 edition, Carlos Santana, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, The 1975, and Good Charlotte are just some of the stellar acts that will be dishing out epic tunes live.
Pal Norte takes place at the Parque Fundidora in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. The park is transformed into a lively playground during the event, but one that’s fully equipped with all that you need for a fun and comfortable experience including free hydration stations.
Tickets include General, VIP, and Hospitality passes.
Taxis are the best way to get around Monterrey. White and green taxis are the most common, and they’re easy to find; just make sure to insist that the driver use the meter, otherwise they may end up overcharging. The buses are another good option, but the subway should be your last option since it doesn’t provide extensive coverage within Monterrey.
The areas of Zona Rosa and San Pedro Garza Garcia have a wonderful selection of budget hostels, mid-range, and high-end lodging to choose from.
Save yourself the stress of finding accommodations last minute by booking early from the map below, because many of the best areas to stay in for Pa’l Norte fill up months before.
Monterrey may not have that colonial charm that most of Mexico is known for, but that’s what makes it special. Its special cosmopolitan vibe and the fact that it’s an entrepreneurial and economic powerhouse has spawned a unique Mexican subculture punctuated by modern hipster establishments, elegant architecture, and vibrant university life set against the backdrop of picturesque mountain ranges.
Art enthusiasts should not miss out exhibits at the MARCO, or the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, for some eye-popping works as well as a scenic courtyard that provides you with spectacular views of Cerro de la Silla. Pop on over to Barrio Antiguo for more local bites and drinks. It’s home to several cafes serving up hearty food, vegan dishes, and authentic treats including quesadillas that will leave you coming back for more. Drink up the nightlife at Café Iguana!
