Don’t Forget: Feria del Carrizo — Basket Fair — Today in San Juan Guelavia, Oaxaca

This is the last day for the Feria del Carrizo until next year. If you are going to Tlacolula, why not take a detour off the Carretera Nacional MEX 190? Here you will see village life — hand-woven basket artistry, great food and dancing. All day.

2017 Feria del Carrizo: Oaxaca’s Handwoven River Reed Basket Fair

Join the celebration in San Juan Guelavia

It’s that time of year again, the end of January and early February, when the river reed weavers of San Juan Guelavia hold their annual fair. The event, now in its sixth year, is more than a show and sale of great baskets.

January 29-February 5, 2017

It’s a food fest beyond imagination! You’ll find lots of tamales, chicken mole, goat barbecue, beer, artisanal mezcal, cookies and cakes there, too, to eat and enjoy. Everything is home made! Safe and clean to eat.

Need a guide? Use Sheri Brautigam’s Textile Fiestas of Mexico to take you there! I introduced Sheri to the Feria last year and she made it a chapter with photos.

Here is the weekly line-up.
