Jocotepec Gran Fiesta Schedule - El Señor del Monte Dec 2010

Come to Jocotepec and enjoy our famous
El Señor del Monte Fiesta!

Jan 3rd 2011 to Jan 16th 2011

If you can only come for one day
be sure and come for Sunday the 16th - the final day.
At around 4PM the huge splendorous statue of El Señor, 
depicted on this poster,
will be taken down from above the altar and carried in a procession
through town with thousands of faithful pilgrims leading the way.
Many pilgrims march on their knees, some are blindfolded
and carry candles.
Indian dancers and other acts will fill out the parade.
It's extremely moving and beautiful to witness.

Hundreds of puestos and impromptu restaurants will fill the town
and plaza of Jocotepec.
 Great shopping and great eating.
See you there!


  1. It sounds tempting. Is what I hear true -- that you folks are doing a Nome weather impression, without the snow?

  2. lol. Yes, it's pretty cold in the early mornings. No doubt about it. But soon warms up to blue sky and sunny, hot even, afternoons.
    Come on up! Just a little ride up the hill, you could practically coast home.
