Feria Del Cedral (Cedral Fair) : April 30- May 5

Even if you're not Catholic, you'll enjoy this festival! This is the anniversary of the first Catholic mass in Mexico, which was celebrated in El Cedral. A more than 150 year old tradition, the fair at El Cedral is held every year during the first week of May to commemorate the Day of the Holy Cross, honoring the safe passage of the 11 founding families who fled the mainland to Cozumel in 1848 during La Guerra de Castas (The Caste War). At the fair, both residents and visitors can enjoy the many food stands, games, dancing and shopping displayed throughout this week-long festival. Particularly of note are the “Head of the Boar” and “The Ribbons” traditional dances which are performed on May 3rd Day of the Holy Cross (Día de la Santa Cruz ). The event also features cattle exhibitions, races, rides and bullfights.
