February

Carnival days

Carnival is celebrated in several communities of the Purépecha Plateau, but the most colorful is probably that of Morelia with its “Torito de Petate Festival”, which takes places along the charming Fray Antonio de San Miguel Avenue, through which the people carry around a palm bull (or torito). Candlemas is also celebrated in February, mainly in the towns of OcumichoZacánCharapan and Cocucho. The regional artisans are renowned for the beauty of their crafts, so do not forget to visit their workshops and take some souvenirs with you.
