This Week… starting September 19, 2011

Municipal Fiestas This Week


Yucatan Living Tixmehuac Fiesta: September 19Tixmehuac, Yucatan
This fiesta is in honor of San Miguel Arcangel. Tixmehuac is a small, agricultural municipality located in the South-Central part of our state, just to the northeast of Tekax and north of Tzucacab. However, Tixmehuac is home to no less than four archaeological zones: Chucub, Kimbilá, Modzil and Nocas, as well as the 18th century church dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel. This fiesta is a one day religious event, but the municipality is well worth visiting.

Yucatan Living Tixcocob Fiesta: Sept. 21 through Oct. 1
This fiesta is in honor of Cristo de la Misericordia. Tixcocob is quite near the city of Merida, to the east – between Conkal on the North and Seye on the South. Tixcocob has always been a cultural and political center for the Mayans. There are plenty of ruins to see and, because the Mayans were (are) so active there, there are also plenty of Spanish built churches and chapels. Look for beautiful leatherwork, as well as fine hammocks in Tixcocob.

Yucatan Living Ticul Fiesta: Sept. 3 through Sept. 5Ticul, Yucatan
This fiesta is in honor of San Román. Ticul is a shopper’s paradise. This is where you want to go for the gorgeous red clay pottery you see throughout Merida and beyond. There are several artisan cooperatives in a variety of fields here. For example, you can also purchase locally made jewelry, hats, embroidery, woven material, and shoes in Ticul. Debi in Merida made it out to the fair in Tucul in March and posted a great article about one of the local potters. On your way, don’t forget to stop in Santa Elena and have lunch at the Pickled Onion. You can read Yucatan Living’s interview with Valerie Pickle here

Yucatan Living Telchac Pueblo: Sept. 24 through Oct. 4
This fiesta is in honor of San Francisco de Asis, Patron Saint of Telchac Pueblo. Telchac Pueblo is not as well known as its beachside neighbor. There are just under 3,000 people living in the entire municipality and about 1/3 of them speak Mayan. Read all about Telchac Pueblo and The Most Beautiful Flower of Yucatan (2006) here. We continue to assure all of our readers, and especially those north of the border, that “small town America” is alive and well in the State of Yucatan – and towns like Telchac Pueblo are living proof of it.
