SELLING MEXICO:
Guanajuato


THOUSANDS GATHER FOR ARTS FESTIVAL

The colorful and lively colonial city of
Guanajuato is gearing up to host the 41st annual Cervantino Festival,
locally called El Cervantino. One of the premier arts and cultural
festivals in all of Latin America, this year’s festival takes place for
three weeks, from October 9 to October 27. The festival draws thousands
of artists who put on performances in genres ranging from opera and
contemporary dance to visual arts, literature and multimedia in dozens
of indoor and outdoor venues throughout the city and nearby Leon; this
year performances will be even further extended throughout the state.

Jazz lovers flock to the bohemian colonial
city of San Miguel de Allende every November for one of Mexico’s largest
music festivals, the International Festival of Jazz and Blues. The

November 13 to November 17, with performances throughout the city by
international and local jazz and blues musicians.
