The Calendaria Fair that began on January 26 will continue through Sunday, February 11, at Juárez Park.

The exhibition and sale of plants is open daily from 8am–9pm at this annual event, which features more than 140 vendors from Puebla, Atlacomulco, Xochimilco, Cuernavaca, Cuautla, León, Celaya, Dolores, Escobedo, Tenango de las Flores, and San Miguel de Allende.

Norberto Carbajo, director of the Ecology Department, told Atención that there are requirements the vendors must fulfill. One of them is that they must bring flowers that have been acclimated to the weather in San Miguel.
