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 Oaxaca's dances, music, and traditions. 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."
