San Marcos Fair dates back to 1604 when a small indigenous Indian settlement, San Marcos, was founded within walking distance of the growing Spanish city of Aguascalientes. It is said that originally, San Marcos Fair was held during grape harvest season. One of the most important times of the year, when grapes go from the vine and start their journey into the wine barrels.
