Guelaguetza 2015 Festival Celebrates Oaxaca Mexico

The vibrant culture, cuisine, dance, and communities of Oaxaca, Mexico, will be celebrated at California State San Marcos during the Guelaguetza 2015 Festival, 10 am  to 5 p.m., Sunday October 4, 2015 on Forum Plaza and the University Student Union Amphitheater. The annual Guelaguetza Festival is the region’s original and largest of its kind.  The festival has been held at CSUSM since 2000 and represents the collaborative effort of the Department of Anthropology and local Oaxacan indigenous community residents and organizations.  

 

This family event is modeled after the yearly festival held in Oaxaca City, Mexico each July, during which members of the states diverse indigenous communities come together to share their distinctive music, dance, dress, and food. The celebration in California has come to symbolize the coming together and unity of Oaxacan communities both in Oaxaca and abroad. The celebration will include a program featuring Oaxacan folkloric dance groups and musicians.  Traditional foods, such as Tlayudas (corn tortillas), pastries, Oaxacan candy, and arts and crafts will be available for purchase.   Proceeds from the event and from the food and crafts sold go toward event expenses and community based projects that aim to improve the health and well being of the Oaxacan transnational community.  

 

The event, which attracts thousands of community members each year, is hosted by Cal State San Marcos, and sponsored by the Coalition of Indigenous Communities of Oaxaca (COCIO) in collaboration with the Anthropology Department at CSUSM.  COCIO is a grassroots organization in North County made up of Mixtec, Zapotec, Chinantec, Trique, Mixe, and other indigenous Oaxacan communities that have come together to support and celebrate Oaxacan culture as well as to support projects that benefit the Oaxacan Community.  The department of Anthropology at CSUSM has been working for over 20 years with Oaxacan indigenous communities in north county San Diego as a way to reciprocate and deepen a long standing and collaborative partnership with the community; a partnership that is intricately tied with the delivery of the department’s community based field courses.

 

The Guelaguetza at CSUSM is open to everyone, with an entry fee of $8 dollars.  CSUSM Students with ID enter free. Children under 10 may attend for free.  Parking is complimentary in Lot C.
