Event Details

July 13 – 15:  Each July, when the pitahaya ripens, the residents of the small organic farming community Miraflores (in English, “Behold the Flowers”) celebrate with a lively weekend harvest festival. Pitahayas are a fruit derived from the organ pipe cactus, and are extraordinarily rich in antioxidants, which may account for the legendary longevity of Miraflores residents. Pitahayas were the favorite food of the region’s indigenous inhabitants, the Pericúes, and thus also have a strong cultural and historical component. Highlights of “la feria” – the 28th edition of which is scheduled for the weekend of July 13 to 15 – include the crowning of a festival queen, a pitahaya gathering contest, and a vast array of food and drink, much of which features the region’s signature fruit. To find about specific dates, click on the LEARN MORE BUTTON to contact CaboViVO
