This year, the Los Locos celebration in San Miguel de Allende will be even more whimsical and fun! The La Calaca Cultural Collective (La Calaca Festival AC) joins the great San Miguel tradition of the Día de los Locos with its debut event LACALOCA, a participatory Loco-themed party beginning Saturday, June 17, at 11am and finishing Sunday, June 18, at 6pm. Appropriately, the event will be held at the magical Ranchito Cascabel—a wondrous and rarely seen estate located in Atotonilco in Montecillo de de la Milpa.

The sixth edition of La Calaca will be November 1–5, 2017. For more news and details, please visit lacalacafestival.org.
