Festival Alfonso Ortíz Tirado

Top choice music in Álamos

One of northern Mexico’s premier cultural events, Álamos’ nine-day late-January festival features top-class classical and chamber music, blues, bossa nova and trova (troubadour-type folk music) performed by artists from across the globe. The festival's namesake, an Álamos native, was a revered opera singer and well-respected physician (Frida Kahlo was among his patients).

Tens of thousands of people descend upon the city during this festival – be sure to book your hotel well in advance.
