What is celebrated on July 28 and 29 in Peru?

Every year on July 28 and 29, Peru dresses up to celebrate. Everyone takes a weekend off, but patriotism invades the cities of the country all over the month. On July 28 and 29 Peru celebrates, but… What exactly?

Every year on July 28 and 29, Peru dresses up to celebrate.

On July 28 is commemorated the proclamation of the Independence of Peru since 1821, but the celebration of the national holidays goes much further than remembering this date. The Peruvian anniversary is about the pride of a country. The pride of the world-renowned Peruvian cuisine, the biodiversity, its incredible ancient culture, races, languages and people.

And of course, cities are celebrated. Each of them. With all the richness hat each one has to offer you. It’s celebrated that in just a few hours you pass from the coast, to the highlands and forest, enjoy different dances, music and traditions in each region.

For Peruvians, it has become a custom traveling across the country’s interior during national holidays, but also for international tourists, as it’s probably one of the most beautiful times for doing it. It’s really magical that in each corner of the country are performed different activities, but that finally the spirit of celebration is what matters.

For Peruvians, it has become a custom traveling across the country’s interior at national holidays.

Even when you can choose any city, there are few that, during the holiday season, are the most popular. In the highlands, you can enjoy the exquisite gastronomy of Arequipa, and on July 27 in the white city, it’s celebrated for some years now “The night of the Peruvian cuisine”. Cuzco and Puno, are also some of the most visited cities in these dates. Both are filled with joy and different events about the commemoration of Independence, as traditional parades in main squares, but each of them in its own way with their dishes, costumes and typical dances.

Traditional parades are waiting for you

Lima makes a traditional and famous military parade on the 29th. But you can also take advantage of these days to disconnect a little and enjoy the serenity of the city, since most people leave the capital. If you don’t want to go too far away from Lima, you have as an option the incredible city of Paracas, which is only 3 hours away by car, offers you beautiful beaches and an amazing natural reserve.

Last but not least, you will find the city of Trujillo. Located in the department of La Libertad in the north of the country. There you can find a beautiful and spring-like weather, and special activities for the season as the “corso de la peruanidad” (Peruvian parade), artistic festivals and presentations of Marinera (folk dance), typical dance of the region.
