More than a dozen bands from all over Mexico will descend on a Zapopan neighborhood when the “Verbena de la Musica Nuestra” (Carnival of Our Own Music) takes over the charming plaza of Atemajac del Valle Saturday and Sunday, February 27 and 28.
Expect to find art crafts, a regional tequila expo, typical foods and games. Musicians will come from Veracruz, the Huasteca, Tierra Caliente and Jalisco. Also redova norteña, corridos (from the northern states), Huichol music, traditional mariachi and Cardenche chants from Durango. Hours are from noon to midnight in the plaza in front of Nuestra Señora de Rosario church, just off Calzada Federalismo at Emiliano Zapata and Ramon Corona. No cover.
