Lakeside Yearly Events

Looking for upcoming yearly events and happenings in the Lakeside area? You found the right spot, The Access Lake Chapala Events section lists all the most popular events that take place each year, such as the local fiestas for individual towns (AjijicSan AntonioSan Juan CosalaJocotepec), local traditions & celebrations or even the school parades which take place during Mexican festivities. If you have heard of a popular event that takes place in the lakeside area,  you will most likely see it here.

Access Lake Chapala is proud to sponsor some of the most beautiful traditions Lake Chapala has. We know that the Lakeside area is known for its low cost of living and close to perfect weather. These are some of the main ingredients that makes this area so “magical”. There are two important factors many people forget and that we must always remember, its traditions and people. This is what keeps the area so unique! If you let the towns traditions fade away, this beautiful community that so many expats call home will start to transition into a city with forgotten traditions. Access Lake Chapala is commuted to keeping these traditions alive, this is why every year we donate to the Lakeside committees that make sure these events run keep going. This is our way of giving back to the community and making sure that the area we all love and live in stays unique.

Lakeside area has different types of community events, some organized by expats such as the Chilli Cook Off and others traditional Mexican events that have been taking place for decades such as the “Ajijic Fiestas”. We attempt to take pictures and cover the majority of these events, so make sure to also visit our blog and photo gallery to see more.
