4th Annual Mayo-Yaqui Cultural Event

October 7, 2016

The Indigenous Community Mayo Yaqui (COMAYA) will hold its fourth annual Great Event this weekend at Plaza Hidalgo in Nogales, Sonora. It is a marvelous opportunity to see and experience the culture, traditions, dance, clothing, food and other aspects of Sonora’s indigenous Mayo and Yaqui peoples.

This annual cultural gathering will feature deer dances, pascola dances, matachine dancers and traditional food of the Mayo and Yaqui ethnic groups. Participants will include representatives of the Yolem Tekia Cultural Center from San Ignacio Cohuirimpo, Navojoa, Sonora.

The Magno Evento will be from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on October 8 and 9.

Plaza Hidalgo is within walking distance from the DeConcini pedestrian crossing. After walking across the border, walk south through Plaza Pesquiera until you reach the first street, Calle Campillo. Take a right and walk for two blocks until you reach Avenida Obregon, then walk south on Obregon for seven blocks. The Plaza is on the left (east) side of the street, just south of the convergence of Avenida Obregon and Avenida Lopez Mateos.
