PASTORELAS, CAROLS AND LOTS OF LIGHT

The year is about to close and the city of Querétaro seeks to take advantage of these holiday parties to capture the attention of our visitors, captivate them to choose this great city as a destination to enjoy the Christmas celebrations.

Throughout this month, the Historic Center of the Queretana capital promises to fill the atmosphere with lights to awaken the Christmas spirit and exalt the traditional elements that distinguish Mexican Christmas.

In addition, part of the most important Queretan traditions take place before the twelfth month began. From the Announcement of the beginning of the festivities by the Queen of Christmas to the routes of the Biblical Cars and the Horseback Riding, the Queretans live their customs to which they can all visit the city center.

On the other hand, the different delegations and neighborhoods of the Queretan capital will carry out activities so that all Querétaro continue the tradition of laughing with the pastorelas and enjoying the sound of the carols that will be interpreted throughout the month of December, so that the city lives Christmas every day of this month.

Conversations about the Queretanas Decembrinas Traditions; variety of pastorelas and theater groups; choral and orchestral concerts; workshops for birth and piñatas… The whole city focused on transmitting and strengthening Mexican customs in December.
