Fiesta of San Isidro

Each year the town of Tepic celebrates the Fiesta of San Pedro – the patron saint of rain, agriculture and livestock. The event is an important part of this rural community’s life and is a time when local farmers bring their decorated mules and livestock to town to be blessed and to pray for a good farming season. As part of the celebrations there is also a commercial fair.

Cuernavaca Flower Fair

Known as ‘Feria de la Flor’ in Mexican, this colourful fair sees the streets and parks of Cuernavaca filled with wonderfully aromatic flower booths and displays. A number of floral and gardening competitions are hotly contested by green-fingered locals and add a little friendly rivalry to the proceedings. Come the evening, visitors gather at the main plaza for a dazzling sound and light show that illuminates the night sky. Formerly a residence of Emperor Maximillian and his wife Carlota, the Borda Gardens are also well worth a visit at this time for their outstanding displays.

Day of the Virgin of Charity/Assumption Day

Celebrated throughout the country, but particularly in Tlaxcala, Day of the Virgin of Charity and Assumption Day is a popular religious ceremony that attracts large crowds from across the region. Highlights include an event known as ‘carpeting the streets’ which sees the town’s roads covered with floral displays and coloured sawdust. Another popular aspect is the running of the bulls where runners try to outrun the bulls as they career along a course through the streets. Many other events take place in Tlaxcala with the main focus of the activities happening in the area around the church in the centre of town.
