Guelaguetza Festival de Oaxaca


This month Arquetopia is looking forward to The Guelaguetza Festival, without doubt the most important holiday and festival in Oaxaca. During July the seven regions of indigneous peoples come together, making a colorful dance party held in Cerro del Fortín, a giant amphitheatre which sits above Oaxaca on the hill west of the city. The performances happen on two Monday’s in July, and are called Lunes del Cerro. There are also street parades and other events all over the city and in areas around Oaxaca during the last few weeks of July… it’s an exciting time to be in the area.
