Tianguis Turístico 2023 in Mexico City: dates, offers, exhibitions and everything you need to know


For the first time, the Mexican capital will be a showcase for the most outstanding tourist offer of the States in the country

Mexico City is hosting for the first time one of the most colorful parties of the year. It is about the Tianguis Turístico, a walk of encounters and cultural contrasts that reaches its 47th edition; a festival that usually takes place in the province. This year, the capital of the country has arranged one of its main avenues and some monuments as a showcase for the tourist offer of all the States.

Mexico City has been chosen for the Tianguis Turístico 2023 due to the reach and visibility that it can give to summer spots that are not part of the usual circuit of destinations that the capitalists like to vacation. The offer is also aimed at the foreign tourist sector visiting Mexico.

47th Edition of the Tianguis Turístico 2023 in CDMX

The capital’s government will place screens and stands along a stretch of Paseo de la Reforma, one of the most important avenues in the city. From the Glorieta de la Diana to the Ángel de la Independencia, adventure hunters will be able to explore the walkways of this street, which will be full of colour, flavor and culture. As it has happened with similar events, such as the International Fair of Friendly Cultures, this tourist display will also be a pretext to bring the curious closer to new worlds, perhaps unnoticed.

According to Nathalie Desplas, head of the Mexico City Ministry of Tourism, promotional tents will also be placed at some monuments in the capital for the same purpose. Exhibitions and recreational activities will be carried out as part of the program for this edition. According to the this government body, there will also be exhibitions with music and dance inside the Chapultepec forest, on the sidewalks that connect the Calzada Juventud Heroica with the Monument to the Niños Heroes.

When does the Tianguis Turístico 2023 in Mexico City start?

The party will last a weekend. From Saturday 25 to Monday 27 March, the fair, which will promote towns, counties, and beaches throughout the country, expects to be visited by thousands of people from the capital willing to travel next summer. All events are free and are scheduled between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

On Saturday March 25, the day of the inauguration, regional dance numbers of some entities of the Republic will be held. In this, the traditional Guelaguetza of Oaxaca is one of the most anticipated shows by attendees. On the other hand, folkloric ballet groups and a presentation by the Voladores de Papantla de Veracruz are scheduled for Monday, March 27.
