THURSDAY

Spain’s Cultural Center in Mexico City (CCEMX) is hosting the Independent Music Fair, an event that provides a space for musicians from all walks of life to showcase their talents. The event will include an open mic, where any songwriter is welcome on stage. There will be events starting at 3 p.m. all the way to 10p.m. The CCEMX is located in Donceles 97 in the Historic Center.

If you’re a cinema fanatic, Le Cinéma IFAL (French Institute of Latin America) located in Río Nazas 43, will be showing the black and white version of the movie Logan. The showing starts at 6 p.m. and entrance is free.

FRIDAY

After a week at the office, our choice for entertainment is the Continental Latin Jazz Fest that will kick off with a performance by Pepe Hernández Groove Gang and Héctor Infanzón. The event will take place at Centro Cultural del Bosque in Chapultepec and starts at 8 p.m. Tickets start at 150 pesos.

If you don’t want to dance the night away, and you’re looking for a more relaxed night, head over to Hotel Downtown at Isabela Católica 30 to sip cocktails and enjoy some food on the hotel terrace that overlooks historic downtown.

SATURDAY

You’ve probably heard not so nice things about pulque, the alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of certain types of maguey (the center of the agave plant). Pulque has a worse rep than it deserves, and if you’re willing to give it a try head over to Foro Clavería on Avenida Clavería 22 for the 2017 Pulque Fair, general admission is 50 pesos. Ska band Maskatesta will play an acoustic set. Get there at 11 a.m.

Pugs are the wrinkly face dogs that people either love or hate, and if you’re one of the lovers, grab your pug and head over to the Monument to the Revolution for the 2017 Pug Meeting CDMX, the event starts at 5 p.m.

SUNDAY

If you’re still figuring out your activities for Father’s Day, here are some options.

73 Vintage Moto Art at the Franz Mayer Museum in Hidalgo 45: A vintage motorcycle exhibit is sure to please all automotive fans with different kinds of motorcycles, international exhibitors, photographers and stands where you can purchase accessories for your bike.

Big Band Jazz Mexico 2017: If your dad is a music fan, more particularly a jazz fan, then head over to Calzada Acoxpa 430 for a free jazz festival that is sure to please music lovers. The event starts at 4:30 p.m.

Picasso y Rivera exhibition: Many people don’t know that Diego Rivera was mentored by Picasso, and now both artists works are on display at the Bellas Artes museum, a rare opportunity to see two of the greatest painters of all time. The exhibit will be available to the public until September 10. The museum opens at 10 a.m. and admission is 60 pesos.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

If you want to take a break from the city this Father’s Day weekend, here are some great options.

San Juan del Río Fair, Queretaro: A festival that offers, theater, shows, rides, food and  a little bit of everything. You’ll find entertainment for the entire family. The fair will take place at the Recinto Ferial in San Juan del Río, Queretaro. Tickets are 50 pesos.

National Park Izta Popo: If you’re tired of the city and are looking for some ecotourism, then this park is a great option. Only a couple of hours drive from Mexico City, take the Chalco-Cuautla highway towards Amecameca. This park is one of the oldest protected areas in Mexico, and offers a wide variety of activities to help you forget the city for a couple of days.
