Festivals and Special Events

Guadalajara's major events include the Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi y la Charrería, a mariachi gathering that takes place from the last days of August through the first week in September, with events downtown in the historic district. Highlights are the inaugural parade and an outdoor gala in Plaza Liberación. The following month brings las Fiestas de Octubre country fair, with nightly live music and other events in the palenque (fairground). A 10-day book fair starting in November attracts literary giants from Spanish-speaking countries and others from around the world.
