Spread over a mile stretch on the Capitals’ main Paseo la Reforma Avenue, Feria de las Culturas Amigas provided an opportunity for thousands of locals and visitors to experience and learn about numerous cultures all in one place. In addition to trying traditional drinks and food, fair-goers could also purchase typical products and keepsakes from these countries.

“Mexico City embraces the international community, and we are excited to express our testament to that through this global fair,” said the Mayor of Mexico City, Dr. Miguel Angel Mancera. With more than half a million people visiting the fair over the course of two weeks, Ferias de las Culturas Amigas is one of the most highly attended events on Paseo de la Reforma, which hosts numerous activities throughout the year.
