Festivals & Holidays


I do my best to be accurate but festival dates are subject to change from year to year.



Margie's Pick


Ceremony: The Blessing of the Animals
Merced Church
Independencia & Miguel Doblado

Animals and their human keepers are there to celebrate the feast day of San Ramón de Nonato, patron saint of women in labor, persons falsely accused and keeper of animals. Expect to see many pets in costumes.


Ceremony: El Grito de Dolores
Zócalo
Oaxaca

The governor of Oaxaca shouts the traditional ‘grito’ from the balcony of the Governor’s palace in commemoration of Independence Day. Massive fireworks follow. No alcohol is sold so the crowd is very family friendly.


Holiday: Independence Day
Mexico

National Holiday - most stores and all offices are closed. Parades in the morning.
