Published on

Oaxaca hosts the unconventional, unconference January 30 - February 9. Be prepared to be surprised.

A group of friends in Oaxaca,Mexico are creating the Responsible Tourism Fair, our 11th event since 2001 and a veritable model of the local travel movement and slow travel.

"Most importantly, the fair will also be a lot of fun," said founder Ron Mader.

The 2011 Responsible Tourism Fair takes place in multiple locations in Oaxaca City and surrounding towns. Visitors have a number of options, including weaver-guided walks in Teotitlán del Valle, photosafaris in public parks and authentic indigenous meals including Caldo de Piedra (Chinanteco), Maatsy (Ayuuk) and tamales (Zapotec and Ayuuk style). Self-guided treasure hunts asks foodies to try various cheeses, chocolates and mezcal. Photographers are invited to share photos in relevant Flickr Groups with prizes to be awarded
