Burning Devil Festival

Guatemala-Burning-Devil-Festival When & Where The Guatemalas Burning Devil Festival is religous festival which usually takes place on December 7th across Guatemala, best celebrated in Antigua.

What to expect At 6pm piles of rubbish and giant effigies of Devils/Diablos are burnt in an attempt to rid the country of anyevil presence. In traditional South American Festival fashion there are plenty of fireworks and marimba bands will drown out the crackle of burning cardboard.
