Festival Internacional Cervantino

Top choice art in Guanajuato

Beginning in the 1950s as merely entremeses (interludes) from Miguel Cervantes' work performed by students, the Festival Internacional Cervantino has grown to become one of Latin America's foremost arts extravaganzas. Music, dance and theater groups from around the world perform diverse works (mostly non-Cervantes related) for two weeks in October.

Tickets for single events range from M$30 to M$650 and should be booked in advance (www.ticketmaster.com.mx) along with hotels. In Guanajuato, tickets are available from a booth by Teatro Juárez two months before the festival.
