Shows in Mexico run the gamut. Guadalajara is famous for its venues dedicated to culture and entertainment. Some of the most famous in the city include the Degollado Theater, home to the city’s Philharmonic Orchestra, which dates from the 19th century; the Cabañas Cultural Institute, formerly the Hospicio Cabañas; the Telmex Auditorium; and the Diana and Galerías Theaters, which host concerts and shows.
The city also boasts a range of sporting venues that have proved to be ideal spaces to host cultural and artistic events, where their characteristic exhuberance makes its presence felt.
The 3 de Marzo Stadium, home to several soccer tournaments, is one such space, located on the campus of the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. Perhaps the most significant, however, is the Monumental Estadio Jalisco, given the history that is still felt here, having been one of the sporting venues for the 1968 Olympic Games.
Private stadiums and bullrings, along with the Bernardo Obregón Tamariz Racetrack, which hosts a NASCAR series race each year, and the Archery Field located in the Unidad Deportiva Revolución, also dot the city, as an indication of its modernity and openness to hosting all kinds of events.
