San Miguel De Allende - Festival of Our Lord of the Conquest


During the first Thursday and Friday of March in San Miguel De Allende, El Señor de la Conquista takes place. Which means the festival of our lord of the conquest. Indigenous Conchero dancers wearing beautiful colorful feathered head dresses dance to the beat of the drum in the Jardin. The dance is in honor of the most revered statues in the Parroqia, ‘Christ of the Conquest’. Which is made from cornstalks and orchard bulbs. It represents the acceptance of Christ by Mexico’s Indigenous people. This is an awesome spectacle to witness and be apart of, even if your on the sidelines with your camera.
