Weaving Competitions

Over the years, the Textile Center Awanallaqta Tocapo has participated and been invited to different fabric contests. In different countries worldwide, helping to conserve and disseminate better our products and especially the culture of our ancestors. In each, the weavers strive to surpass themselves, creating works of art that are as amazingly beautiful as they are technically complex. The weavers work together to create a large group entrance that combines their collective knowledge, skill and creativity.

On a weekend close to this date, Cusco museums hold a parade up Av. Sol and around Plaza de Armas. Independently, each museum organizes free activities for the public.
