Oaxaca, Mexico Aug. 1, 2017/Best of Life PR/–Mexican master artisans and culture will be showcased at the inaugural Lazo Experiences event presented by Lazo, a platform that celebrates traditional Mexican culture.
Lazo Experiences is a multi-sensory lunch experience that will feature master artisans that represent Mexican culture at it’s finest.
Hosted at ExHacienda Guadalupe, Lazo Experiences is a lunch program that combines sight with smell, touch, sound, and taste. The traditions of Mexico will be brought to life for anyone who attends the event. There will be two levels of tickets available for purchase ranging from $420-$550 USD.
The first stop of the event will be at noon, in downtown Oaxaca at the church at Tlacolula. This visit to the church will be a private visit which will start out with a show of Calenda dolls. Calenda dolls are an Oaxacan tradition. After the show of Calenda dolls, guests will visit the ExHacienda Guadalupe, a 200-year-old farmhouse compound. A gourmet lunch will be prepared by Lalo and a number of traditional local cooks. After lunch, cocktails will be served and music will be played with a special performance at 7 pm. Private transportation will be available starting at 6 pm to 9 pm for guests to return to hotels.
“Lazo celebrates Mexican culture and the unique genius of traditional Mexican artists by placing a spotlight on these select individuals, and sharing their stories, and their works, with a global audience,” said Paola De la Rosa, General Manager, Lazo. “Developing programs such as this series, with such esteemed partners, Lalo and Raul Cabra is a wonderful way to communicate the rich traditions and inspired culture of our people.
