The Tunich Craft Fair plans to head back to Dzityá’s main square this year.

After attempting to continue during the pandemic with a virtual fair, this year organizers feel ready to go back 100% face-to-face.

The yearly “Hecho a Mano” event has been one of the region’s largest and most anticipated crafts fairs. Shoppers go for unique toys, jewelry, pottery, woodwork and textiles. In addition, Tunich’s stage brings music, dance, children’s shows and comics.

The Tunich Craft Fair is a 21-year-old tradition, bringing together hundreds of artisans in a town known for stone and wood craftsmanship. Vendors come from as far away as Michoacán, Guanajuato, Puebla, and Veracruz to join local creators.

The site for the fair is just past the Periferico, accessed via the Dzityá exit on the Mérida-Progreso highway.

Artisans wishing to participate should contact programaspermanentes@merida.gob.mx.
