Spring in Mexico City is what some consider to be the peak time to visit. For example, the city empties out as people go to different cities and states to celebrate Easter week; the weather is at prime loveliness, and the delightfully lilac-hued jacaranda trees are in full bloom. However, there’s far more to spring in Mexico than the peaceful atmosphere – here are the events and exhibitions you need to see this season in Mexico City.

Celebrate Sant Jordi in Mexico

World Book Day celebrations take place on April 23rd, and this date also coincides with Saint George (San Jorge/Sant Jordi) festivities. Everyone should be at least vaguely familiar with the story of Saint George, the dragon-fighting, princess-rescuing patron saint of both England and Catalunya, although Catalan tradition dictates the exchanging of books and roses to celebrate. Across the city, events will be taking place to mark this special day, especially in UNAM buildings and at the Orfeó Català de Mèxic.

Various points across the city, on both Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd, including UNAM and the Orfeó Català de Mèxic, Calle Marsella 45, Juárez, Mexico City, Mexico, +52 55 5207 5114

Attend Cocktail Week

Mexico City’s fifth annual Cocktail Week will be taking place from April 18th and culminating on April 29, 2017, with the Mexican Finals of Diageo’s World Class Global Cocktail Competition. As a result, cocktail bars all across the city will be offering promotions and discounts to celebrate the fine-drinking, cocktail-consuming culture that the event hopes to promote. So, if you’re feeling the need to let off some steam and enjoy some world-class cocktails after Easter week, then there’s no better time to visit Mexico City.

Various locations across the city.
