About the event
Join the Ballet Folklórico Mexicano de Nueva York for its 10th Annual Guelaguetza Festival at Socrates Sculpture Park.
About the Guelaguetza
Guelaguetza, whose name comes from the indigenous Zapotec word “to give” or “to offer,” takes place in Oaxaca City, Mexico, every summer and showcases the dances, music, and traditions of Oaxaca. Each region brings to the festival and its participants something “to give” which is representative of that region, including the much-loved “Dance of the Pineapple.”
