Benito Juarez Holiday

I will be in Oaxaca for Juarez Birthday Holiday. Is there any event on that day that is a must see in or out of town? Also, any concerts, art exhibitions and other events of special interest from the 17th to the 23rd of March.

This link should go to the events schedule. If it goes to the home page, click on events. Things get added so you might want to check it again just before you leave home.

I was there last year for the holiday; it was a special birthday commemoration so a little more going on than normal. The new museum was dedicated; the renovation of parque Llano / parque Juarez was celebrated. It was a great excuse for setting off more cohuetes than usual.

One of my classmates went to the pueblo of Juárez birth and was invited by a local family to join their celebration.

One of my friends who is a direct descendent of Sr. Juárez basically just ignored the whole thing.

Enjoy your stay, Mary
