Lord of the Vidrieras

Teposcolula

If you want to get to know the spirit of Teposcolula, you have to come during the festivities of the Señor de las Vidrieras, which take place during the last days of February and the first days of March.

During the festivities, you will see the authentic “calendas” and the inevitable parades with colorful typical costumes carried by Mixtec men and women. The music and dancing don't stop, while the atmosphere smells like flowers and chocolate.

If you want to acquire some palm crafts, this is the ideal moment, since many of its creators offer designs made specifically for the festivities and during the verbena, there is a constant exhibition of the best of Teposcolula.

The gastronomy plays a leading role that can be tasted from the view. During the festivities, mole negro, chiles rellenos, and chocholuco -which deserves a special mention- flood the houses and streets with their exquisite presence.

As for the chocholuco, it is a representative dish of the town of Teposcolula, it is a tamale wrapped in tender corn leaves, which is made with tortilla dough and accompanied by beef, pork or chicken and, of course, the delicious Oaxacan mole negro.

Another great bonus is that if you haven't had the opportunity to go to la Guelaguetza in the capital of Oaxaca, during the festivities in honor of the Señor de las Vidrieras you can enjoy a demonstration of what is experienced during the big party, this is usually held in the Open Chapel.

The participation of the Philharmonic Band of San Pedro and San Pablo Teposcolula is common. The music will make your skin crawl with its nostalgic and powerful cadence at the same time.
