August is also the month for the National Copper Fair in Santa Clara del Cobre. With these two events, August is an excellent time for our Pátzcuaro visitors to enhance their summer experience.

You will find various venues for guitar-building competitions during the Faire. Other areas represented in addition to Michoacán include Tijuana, and the States of Mexico, Sonora, and Guanajuato.
