6 Day Photo Workshop
July 20 - 25, 2023
5 OF 7 SPOTS LEFT!
The Guelaguetza Festival held in Oaxaca, Mexico, showcases the finest samples of Mexican folklore. We will be visiting local pueblos with regional dances and music that has survived since the pre-Hispanic era, and the festival annually gathers huge audiences excited to see the ancient cultural heritage.
Residents of Oaxaca City dress in traditional costumes and showcase their folklore dances and songs as well as delicious food. One of the main attractions of the festival is the parade that starts in the Plaza de Santo Domingo. People of all ages participate in the procession wearing flamboyant costumes, masks, and wigs. Some of these costumes are passed from generation to generation to preserve local customs and beliefs.
Guelaguetza is also known as Los Lunes del Cerro, or Mondays on the Hill, for the amphitheater is set atop of a hill and celebration takes place on the two last succeeding Mondays in July.
