The Guelaguetza, or Los lunes del cerro (Mondays on the Hill), is an annual indigenous cultural event in Mexico that takes place in the city of Oaxaca, capital of the state of Oaxaca, as well as in nearby villages. The celebration centers on traditional dancing in costume in groups, often gender-separated groups, as is traditional, and includes parades complete with indigenous walking bands, native food, and statewide artisanal crafts such as prehispanic-style textiles. Each costume (traje) and dance usually has a local indigenous historical and cultural meaning. Although the celebration is now an important tourist attraction, it also retains deep cultural importance for the peoples of the state and is important for the continuing survival of these cultures.
My plan is Mexico City and Oaxaca. I have whole week vacation so may stay the rest of the week in Mexico (until Friday Protected content and Mexico City) Please feel free to join me anytime from Friday to beyond as your schedule fits best. The main event that I recommend is The Gualaguetza on Monday, 22nd of July on Oaxaca City.
