-The best Frida

Mexfestival wants to celebrate one of Latin America’s most respected visual artists, Frida Kahlo. If you are inspired by her, you can enter in the category of THE BEST FRIDA!



Catrin and Catrina are the well-dressed skeleton-like characters made famous by the cartoon illustrations of José Guadalupe Posada. If you feel you have a flair for make-up artistry this category is for you. Enter yourself, help a friend or enter as a couple.



If you have a sombrero and want to try to be a Mariachi singer for a day, show us how much creativity you have and join the fun!


To take part all you have to do is to come in your costume to the Mexfestival on the 29th of October Mexfestival. You will receive a free professional digital picture of you or you and your friends, and you will be in with a chance to win $300 in prizes, including a surprise directly from Mexico. Children are more than welcome!


Attendees will select the winner from all the pictures taken on the day.
