4th till the 19th April 2016

Patron Festival in Holbox celebrates the Saint Telmo González, the fishermen saint, and it is held from the 4th to the 19th of April. These festivities honor the Holy Saint of fishermen, which starts with small celebrations in the homes of villagers where sea food is shared and people praises to San Telmo. During this time the main square of Holbox dresses holiday with a traditional fair of ancient towns in Mexico, people mount games and attractions for children, food and handicrafts stands and sale of products of the region; at the end of the last day, the island fishermen and their families perform a procession by the sea, culminating with a great popular “verbena” (meeting of people) in downtown with a great party ambiance and celebrate all night long the Holy protector of Holbox and its people.
