The colors of Mexican culture, the aroma of its spicy gastronomy, and the typical mariachi music of its local fairs will flood London's Guildhall Yard from July 26-28 during the first edition of Fiesta de México.
The center of the British capital will host this event as a celebration of the traditions of the Latin American country and will offer visitors a variety of activities to enjoy with the family, including crafts, food and drink workshops, live music, or dance demonstrations, among others.
The Mexican fiesta will start with a Mexican food market, where you can buy the main ingredients of your kitchen, and continue with a wrestling show, the most popular sport in Mexico, according to organizers in a statement.
Throughout the weekend, the Las Adelitas women's mariachi orchestra, Pablo Aguilar's Mariachi Orchestra, Las Guadalupes, and Grupo 4 Cascabel will set the pace with their musical fusion of violins, trumpets, and guitars, and pay tribute to the great Mexican artists of all time.
The most famous cocktails such as margaritas or 'la michelada' and its star drink, tequila, will also be present at the Fiesta de México, where attendees will also be able to participate and learn how to prepare them in the workshops promoted along with London´s Tequila and Mezcal Fest.
In addition, the cards of the Mexican game of chance "Lotería" and the traditional Mexican basketwork can also be made by the artist Katapixia.
In total, three days of Mexican food, drink, and entertainment will bring the country's festivities and traditions to the heart of London during the last weekend in July.
