An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on of November, repeating indefinitely
Dia de Independencia de Cuenca, Azuay Province
November 3, 1820, the city of Cuenca declared independence from Spain. Every other year, this is a national holiday in Ecuador (exchanged with the Independence Day of Guayaquil in October). There are hundreds of planned special events that take place throughout the month with most taking place the first weekend in November. Many include recognition of the Day of the Dead taking place on November 1st and 2nd. Expect this celebration to be magnified in 2020 as Cuenca will celebrate their bicentennial.
