Merida Events: The End of An Era

This Week… starting December 17, 2012

Municipal Fiestas This Week

Editor’s Note: The worker bees that buzz furiously behind the scenes to bring you this weekly events listing are taking the week off between Christmas and New Year’s. So the following are the events that we know of for the next TWO weeks. See you in 2013!!

Yucatan Living Maya Cultural Festival
From Friday December 14 until December 21, there are going to be a myriad of events going on around Yucatan, too numerous to mention here. We will be sure to mention some of the most important and easiest-to-see events. Events include book presentations, scientific and cultural conferences and discussions, blessings of cenotes, dancing, singing, theatrical performances, telescopes to see the stars, cooking and art demonstrations, artisans booths… anything and everything to celebrate the end of this baktun and the beginning of a new era. For a full listing, you’ll want to explore this website: www.festivalculturamaya.com (in Spanish).

Tizimin Fiesta and Fair

Yucatan Living Tizimin Fiesta: December 15 through January 10
This is a huge fiesta in the heart of Yucatan’s horse country. Visit the Tizimin Website to see loads of pictures of this great area. Tizimin is that large municipality that borders the Gulf of Mexico and Quintana Roo, as well as extending far into the interior of the State. This gives this municipality access to all of the best of the entire peninsula. Their fiestas are always “must attend” events.

Yucatan Living Tixpehual Fiesta: December 17 through December 20
This is the annual “County Fair” of this municipality. Tixpéual is bordered on the north by Tixkokob, on the south by Kanasin and Acanceh, on the east by Seye and Tixkokob, and on the west by Kanasin and Merida. Did somebody say “location-location-location?” Tixpéual is one of those places where, when you tell folks you live “in a village on the Yucatan Peninsula,” you neglect to add that it is practically in sight of the city. We hope you take a look at this little municipality. Great things are coming from here in the not too distant future.

4 Responses to “Merida Events: The End of An Era”

  1. Are the films at the Olimpo, such as “The African Queen” in their original English or are they dubbed into Spanish?

  2. Most likely they are in English with Spanish subtitles. As a general rule, the only movies that are dubbed are children’s movies.

  3. Just wondering where the Events for January are. Someone asked us if we were going to a concert (Lila somebody) tomorrow night (Jan. 6) and I said I’d look it up but your last “Events” item is dated Dec. 17th. Thanks.

  4. Yep, we put as many events as we could find out about before Christmas, and then we took two weeks off. Events will resume publication again on Monday, January 7.
