Third National Magical Towns Fair coming to Querétaro in October
In order to consolidate the 111 “Magical Towns” in Mexico, the third edition of the “National Fair of Magical Towns” will take place at the Querétaro Congress Center from October 14 to 16.
The fair will feature three special sections:
- One, dedicated to arts & crafts exhibition.
- Two, a space for more than 20 state agencies from different states.
- Three, dedicated to the “Let’s travel for Mexico” program, where affordable travel packages will be offered in order to increase the number of national tourists who visit the different attractions in the country.
At a press conference, Undersecretary of Innovation and Tourism Development, Gerardo Corona Gonzalez, said that the first edition of this fair was held in Jalisco, the second in Puebla and now it’s Querétaro’s turn to organize this important event.
“We are excited about this event, because it supports a diversified program that promotes employment and works as a natural attraction itself. By creating new jobs, it also helps to counteract migration, which benefits these magical towns and the whole country,” said the official.
“Last year, approximately 30 thousand visitors attended the fair in Puebla, and this year, we expect to exceed that number. I want to reiterate my gratitude to the state of Queretaro, that has become the fifth most visited non-beach destination in Mexico. And I would like to invite all Mexicans to visit this state, that awaits you with open arms” Corona Gonzalez continued.
In turn, the Director of Destinations of the Tourism Secretariat, Jose Angel Diaz Rebolledo, said state officials and committee representatives of each Magic Town will attend this important fair.
“Different light and sound shows will be presented at the fair, which overall objective is the promotion of these tourist destinations, and at the same time, the generation of networks to share and boost tourism activity” Diaz said.
Gerardo Corona Gonzalez finally declared that this year there are no new Magical Towns’ appointments. The main objective of this edition is to consolidate the 111 towns that already have been designated.
