On this date, along with the next day, are the most important in terms of party dates. After months of hard dance training, the most renowned dance groups of Puno compete in the stadium making very beautiful choreographic scenes.
Keep in mind that the groups participating in the competition after their presentation, they wait in the exterior of the stadium, where they wait for 1 hour or more to dance later in the main avenues of the city.
Start: 6:00 approx
End: 18:00 Approx.
Stadium Enrique Torres Belón and avenues.
Where to buy tickets?
Tickets are sold at the stadium the day before the contest, likewise, the same day can be purchased at very early hours of the morning
The most common is that people buy their tickets before the event day, the ticket value ranges between 30 to 100 soles, depending on the location of seats, south, east, west and north.
If you have missed tickets, do not worry, usually the local people (including me), we are able to find somewhere outside the stadium and watch the dancers in the streets of Puno, it's free and you can move around with ease.

I apologize to the reader of Puno, if I do not mention their groups, this is my personal opinion, as I saw during my life in Puno
At this time many thieves of houses and pockets come to Puno. Whenever you are on the street put your phones/wallet in front pockets. Never be so late in the up to 8pm (if you are near the stadium) or 10pm in some central areas of the city. After these hours it is common to see drunk people urinating in the streets or in prohibited places. Try to take advantage from morning until evening to see, then we recommend to be careful.
