Feria Yucatan Xmatkuil

The state of Yucatán sets the example of warmth and attention to its visitors, and this fall it is in fiesta mode with the 40th edition of its traditional fair, from November 7-30. The Feria Yucatán in Xmatkuil is the meeting place for all productive and business sectors to offer the best of their products and services in one single place. Also included are the works of Yucatecan artisans, who continue the legacy of their ancestors and preserve original techniques.

Visitors will have the chance to enjoy various shows, including the dolphin, sea lion, and divers at the Delfinario, located in the Zona de Atracciones. This year there will also be a new attraction here, the movie tribute show “Tributo al Cine” where different movie sets will be on display with scenery related to the characters from famous movies.  A new attraction in the Zona de Espectáculos is the “Las Vegas Magic Show,” presented by the Brazilian-Mexican Eriko Trevensoli. For the little ones, the circus “Circo Aventura” is another new attraction at the Feria Yucatán.

Another great feature of the fair is the Carpa de Espectáculos, a tent where well-known regional comedians present comedy shows, each one with his/her own style.

Once again livestock will be well represented at the Pista de Calificación, a ring where important bovine events will take place, including the Congreso Mundial Brangus world congress and the XXI Feria de Ganadería Tropical livestock fair. There will also be the rating of various ovine breeds, the equine and goat livestock exhibitions, and the Torneo Hípico horse tournament.

The public is invited to be part of the free concerts which will be presented at the Teatro del Pueblo stage featuring the following performers: Cuisillos, Nelson Kancela, Junior Klan, Límite, Inspector, El Gran Silencio, El Mimoso, Pancho Barraza, Súper Lamas, Banda La Ejecutiva, La Sonora Santanera, La Radio, 3Ball MTY, Alexander Acha, ATL and Lafaurie.

As well, the groups Niche, Aventura, Guayacán orchestra, Rancho Viejo band, Los Sebastianes band, Pequeños Musical band, and Julión Álvarez will perform on the Pista de Espectáculos stage.

On the Palenque stage another group of musical and comedy stars complete the entertainment showcase.  Here you will be able to see Los Ángeles Azules, Amanda Miguel and Diego Verdaguer, Aleks Syntek, Río Roma, Daniela Romo, Margarita “La Diosa de la Cumbia”, Pandora, Carlos Rivera, Bilbao Show, Pierre David and Jaime Varela “Los Gigantes de Parodiando”, the show “Ellas también son ellos de Nany Namú” and the show by Vlogueros Gwabir, Marcela and Benshorts.

All this and more awaits the visitors to Feria Yucatán: a fusion of commercial, livestock, cultural, and entertainment activities. Come join in the fun from November 7-30 for the celebration of 40 years of Feria Yucatán, 40 years being the fair for everyone.
