Calendar of San Miguel Annual Events...

Something for Everyone!

T here's always something special going on in San Miguel.

Annual events crowd the calendar with a rich and varied banquet of doings, from traditional fiestas and processions to world-class concerts, from film festivals to fireworks spectacles.

San Miguel de Allende is famous as a "fiesta" town, and sometimes the reason isn't obvious. San Miguel loves to party. And, like most of Mexico, it has a serious love affair going on with fireworks.

A Mexican Castillo fireworks explodes in San Miguel de AllendeI remember one evening when I walked up to the Jardín and saw a castillo, the traditional fireworks tower that explodes higher and higher until finally a flaming disk flies right up into the sky. It was set up in front of the Parroquia and started its fiery climb just as I arrived. After enjoying the sparking, sparkling spectacle for awhile, I wandered down Cuna de Allende to one of my favorite cafes, El Ten-Ten Pie. I asked Juan, the owner, what the occasion was, why the fireworks.

"Tuesday," I said.

He gave an impish grin. "Ah," he said with a nod. "It's the Tuesday fiesta!"

No wonder I love San Miguel de Allende!
