About Guelaguetza

This 2022 turns 90 the maximum Oaxacan party. The Guelaguetza is the most important ethnic folk festival in America. In this expression of multiculturalism, the 8 regions and 16 ethnic groups of the beautiful state of Oaxaca gather in brotherhood to celebrate the corn goddess Centéotl.

On Lunes de Cerro, the Isthmus, the Sierra Norte, the Sierra Sur, the Central Valleys, the Mixteca, the Coast, the Papaloapan Basin and the Cañada meet to offer Centéotl their dances, music, culture, gastronomy and traditions. The Oaxacan people share their Fiesta with tourists who come from all over the world and pack the Guelaguetza Auditorium.

Although the maximum attraction is the Mondays of the Hill, the entire month of July is the month of the Guelaguetza, filling the streets of the Historical Downtown of Oaxaca with celebrations, dances and music. In addition, the hosts show their hospitality with traditional treats by distributing flowers and bread among the attendees, and if you are lucky, even a few mezcal kisses can touch you.
