Immerse yourself in one of the most vivid expressions of Mexican culture as the 7th annual Guelaguetza Festival New York City returns to Socrates Sculpture Park!

La 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.”
