Witness the Guelaguetza Festival in Oaxaca

Music and dancing are used to celebrate local indigenous culture in the Guelaguetza Festival, held on two consecutive Mondays each July. 

Dating back to the pre-Hispanic era, this dazzling dance show includes colorful costumes and props, all against a backdrop of the city and surrounding hills. For centuries, representatives from communities across Oaxaca have gathered atop this hill to celebrate their diverse cultures and traditions.

Join the throngs of revelers in the hilltop auditorium to watch this one-of-a-kind spectacle, where traditional clothing, regional folk dances, and unity are center-stage.
