Kibi and Torta Fair in Progreso: When and where will it be? 

- July 9, 2024

The Kibi Cake Fair in Progreso, originally scheduled for July 7 but postponed due to Hurricane Beryl, will resume this weekend.  

Progreso’s international boardwalk will once again host the third edition of the fair, celebrating the 153rd anniversary of Progreso. This gastronomic event is dedicated to the famous kibis, but in Torta form. The Torta de kibi originated in Progreso and remains a unique attraction in the state. 

On Sunday, July 14, the fair will take place on Calle 66 by 19, next to the Meteorite Museum, starting at 9:00 AM. Visitors can enjoy cultural and musical activities during the event. 

And what are kibis, you ask?  

Also known as kipe or kibbeh, kibis are a type of wheat dough ball filled with ground meat, fried to create a crispy crust on the outside. Legend says that Lebanese immigrants offered kibis to the people of Yucatán as a gesture of integration into society.
