Fiestas Patrias

September 16th is the day when the shout of Miguel Hidalgo, the priest, is commemorated. It happened in the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores (Church of Our Lady of Sorrows), and kicked off the War of Independence. Nowadays is commemorated with music, shows and a military parade. There’s no doubt about it: this is the best place to celebrate the shout!

When: September 6th – 16th
