Culture, handicrafts, traditional garments, traditions, and other products from the state captivated Mexico City through Yucatán Expone, a strategy promoted by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal to attract commercial ties for artisans, entrepreneurs, and producers, making the Zócalo, the most important exhibition square in the country, the venue this year.

Attracted by everything that encompasses Yucatecan culture, from traditional garments to handicrafts, typical sweets, snacks, and more, on its second day, the exhibition brought together thousands of people and whole families to experience a piece of the region. Ericka Velázquez, a resident of the capital, took a memorable photo with her relatives.

She mentioned that through this exhibition, they were able to learn more about Yucatán, and what caught her attention the most were the handicrafts and the traditional food. “I loved it. We bought cheese balls for my mom, who loves them; habanero sauce for my brothers, and now we will go try the gastronomy. We crave some panuchos and chocolate,” she said.

Likewise, she invited citizens to visit the site, saying, “Come, it’s amazing! You will eat delicious food and enjoy everything that is here with your family.” On Saturday, the Yukalpetén Typical Orchestra performed the Yucatecan Gala, and there was the Paseo de Flores, a path over 100 meters long adorned with 42,000 plants forming figures of typical elements such as mosaics, pyramids, and colonial arches.

There was also an immersive kaleidoscope experience, a pink pool with flamingos, a photo gallery, and various photo opportunities that contribute to the promotion of the state, as confirmed by Hilda Alfaro. She particularly liked the clothing and the botanical journey and stated, “It’s a very comprehensive Expo. We had cochinita pibil tamales, lima soup, and chaya water. We invite everyone to come because this way we support the state.”

It is worth remembering that in 2022, the exhibition reached other places in the country, such as Durango, Chihuahua, Aguascalientes, Jalisco, and the municipalities of La Magdalena Contreras, Álvaro Obregón, and Coyoacán in Mexico City. This year, it continues its journey in this emblematic location, thanks to the collaboration between the governments of Yucatán and Mexico City.

América Pantoja Couoh, from the traditional clothing company Creaciones Anita in Muna, shared that this exhibition represents a great opportunity for artisans from many municipalities to showcase their creations in other territories. “We have had the participation of many people, and we have also been approached by individuals who want to market our garments in other parts of the country. We invite you to visit us and enjoy a piece of Yucatán that we bring for all of you,” she added.

Yucatán Expone brings a piece of the region to Mexico City from May 12th to May 21st, with the participation of over 270 micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises, featuring products made by 800 artisans, such as sauces, seasonings, garments, footwear, handicrafts, liquors, honey, horchatas, concentrates, natural products, coffee, hammocks, bags, jewelry, costume jewelry, marquesitas, and vacuum-sealed food, among others.

In its first edition at the Zócalo in Mexico City, it brings together representatives from 20 municipalities, including Izamal, Tekit, Ticul
