Fiesta del Señor del Rescate

This celebration takes place at the beginning of February with the traditional dances of the viejitos, public dances, and festivities, just as when Tata Vasco de Quiroga began the tradition over 400 years ago. The inhabitants of the many towns around the shores of Lake Pátzcuaro take part in the festivities that honor the image of the Señor del Rescate, a 16th-century painting that is part of the colonial art collection held in the Convent of Santa Ana.

When: February 2
