Festival in Valle del Maiz
Celebrated around the end of May.
Although Valle del Maiz is a relatively small colonia, it is one of the oldest in the city and their annual week long festivities are huge. This celebration incorporates commemoration of the Holy Cross, remembrance of the small wars between the Chichimecas and Spanish soldiers, as well as pre-hispanic practices of harvest dances, prayers and blessings.
