According to a statement, the inauguration of this event will take place at the Mayan Ceremonial Center, at 7:30 p.m., on March 7. “We will have live music by other municipalities’ groups and we will dance the traditional Maya Pax” (prehispanic music).
People will be able to get involved in the ancient customs of the Mayan culture. Together with the Organizing Committee, the municipal government will carry out activities throughout the 10 days that this event will last.
Tulum’s mayor (presidente municipal) highlighted that the artisans of the Zona Maya and Transition Zone, will sell their textiles, ornamentals and folkloric jewelery.
For 10 days this festival will take place, feturing a strong textile offer with ancestral typical Maya and Mestizo clothing.
