Saquisilí also has very lively Corpus Christi celebrations.

It is preferable to arrive around early to mid morning and make sure you bargain due to the intense competition while for the animal market it's best to arrive before 07:00. The local Indian attire consists of small black hats and red poncho garments.

Some hotels (Hilton Colón and Quito) offer a two-hour tour to the Saquisilí market on Thursdays. Also many Latacunga agencies offer Saquisilí in their tours.
