GDLUZ Festival 2020
“The festival that illuminates all of Mexico”
GDLUZ is a festival of lights that shines in the Centro Histórico zone of Guadalajara every February. It was first held in 2017 in celebration of the City of Guadalajara’s 475th birthday! It has now become an annual festival to mark this milestone, with the fourth edition appearing February 12-15, 2020.
More than 40 attractions for the entire family include video mapping, multimedia shows, 13 pyrotechnics shows, music, and live classical ballet performances. The shows and performances are held nightly at 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00 pm. The theme for 2020 will highlight Mexican culture including color, food, music, clothing and art.
The events fill the streets and plazas surrounding the Catedral de Guadalajara and for 2 kilometers to Hospico Cabañas. This year the festival is expanding to also light up Paseo Alcalde and Ciudad Creativa Digital. More than 1.1 million visitors from Mexico and around the world are expected to attend the four-day festival!
You can find all of the details about the festival including the schedule of events, maps, and more on the GDLUZ Festival website.
Centro Histórico is a comfortable and scenic 30-minute walk from La Fe Hotel and Arts. If you can’t attend this year, it’s never too early to start planning for “the festival that illuminates all of Mexico” next February!
