Dating back to before the Spanish arrived in the Americas, the Guelaguetza celebration began in Oaxaca, Mexico, and infuses traditional dance and music with food and crafts in a spirited display of community bonding. Now an annual tradition that combines indigenous culture with the Catholic pageantry introduced by European settlers, the event is celebrated across the Western Hemisphere. Sonoma County grassroots organization Oaxaca Tierra del Sol presents the North Bay's own Guelaguetza festival with more than a hundred dancers and performers from across the state. The party gets going Sunday, July 19, on the grounds of the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 10am. $12-$15. 415.754.9079.
