Merida Events: Carmen!

This Week… starting June 7, 2010

 

Municipal Fiestas This Week

Quintana Roo Fiesta 5 Day Event - June 8 through June 12
Yes – we have a municipality named Quintana Roo. This fiesta is in honor of San Bernabe. Quintana Roo is a little triangular municipality in the center of the state. it is just east of Tunkas and just north of Dzitas. There are less than 1,000 people in the municipality and over half of them speak Maya. This is a rural municipality that makes its living from a variety of agricultural industries, so look for excellent leatherwork here.

Opichen Fiesta 5 Day Event – June 8 through June 12
This fiesta is in honor of San Bernabe. Opichen is not a large municipality. It is almost surrounded by Kopoma, Maxcanu, and Halacho, with a little bit of its southern border shared with the State of Campeche. 80% of the population speaks Maya and Nahuatl. This is cattle and pork country, so look for excellent leatherwork here.

Teya Fiesta 1 Day Event – June 11
This fiesta is in honor of San Bernardino. Teya is a tiny municipality in the central eastern part of the state. It is directly south of Cansahcab and east of Suma. The last census showed just over 1,900 people living in Teya, with over 1,200 of them speaking Mayan. Don’t count Teya off your list because it is small. These folks are moving on up and actually have a college in their municipality. Teya is also one of the best cared for locations in all of Yucatan, so go visit and see the lifestyle they have developed. A little less than half of the population works in agriculture, and almost a third work in the tourism industry. This is an interesting little place. Don’t forget that there is a new plant nursery on the main highway out there and their specialty is orchids!

Tinum Fiesta 1 Day Event – June 12
This fiesta is in honor of San Antonio de Padua. Everybody knows where Tinum is because that is the municipality where Chichen Itza is located. The artisans here make wonderful hammocks and are well known for their stone carving skills. Tourism is the largest employment sector in this municipality.

Tekit Fiesta One Day Event – June 13
This fiesta is in honor of San Antonio de Padua. Tekit is a many-sided polygon that has three neighbors to the north: Tecoh, Homun, and Huhi, and three neighbors to the south: Mama, Mayapan, and Chumayel. It is between Tecoh, on the east, and Sotuta on the west. 4,800 of their 8,500 inhabitants speak Mayan. The artisans of Tekit stay busy all the time. They make guayaberas, blouses and huipiles, all of cotton. This is the major employer in the area. They also make hammocks and leather goods.

Tekom Fiesta One Day Event – June 13

This fiesta is in honor of San Antonio, patron of the town. Tekom is a long, thin municipality that comes off of the northern part of the Municipality of Valladolid in a southwesterly direction. In this area, there are many small, family owned factories that produce articles made of wood, as well as typical clothing, embroidered tablecloths, and the traditional weaving of hammocks. Still, over 55% of the people who live in Tekom make their living in some form of agriculture.

Valladolid 7 Day Event – June 13 through June 19
This is the Fiesta of the Divine Redeemer. We strongly recommend this fiesta because Valladolid has become one of the major exporting points for the entire southeastern portion of Mexico, especially with respect to Mayan made products and objects of art. Whether you are looking for just the right embroidered blouse – or for the perfect piece of leatherwork, hammocks, jewelry or stone carvings – Valladolid (and their big new fairground) is the place to be. We don’t think there is any way to fully appreciate Valladolid in a day, so we suggest making an overnight trip of it. That way, you will get to see everything!

Note: There are a number of events in the eastern part of Yucatan this week, with most in Valladolid. This area is one of the fastest growing areas in all of Yucatan, so don’t overlook Valladolid as a destination for great entertainment!

Yucatan Living Two Performances: Theater and Dance

Time: Monday, 6:00 PM
Dance: Closing Performance of the Danza Jazz de Wallis Workshop
This is the end of the season performance of the Scholar’s Course for 2009 2010. The title of the performance is ‘Remembering Glenn Miller’.

Yucatan Living Tuesday of Trova: New Trova of Wallis
The final performance of the Scholar’s Course 2009 2010. This has been a workshop that emphasizes Guitarra Rondalla and the Instrumental Musicians of Wallis. Yucatan is one of the few places in the world that has the professional capacity to provide educational opportunities for the types of guitars and instrumental musicians that lead them into careers in chamber and symphony orchestras around the world. In fact, we have both Rondallas (small groups of guitars) and a guitar orchestra, so this performance will surely be one of the best available in all of Merida this week.
