The festival took place on March 22nd to March 26th, 2010, in honour of the bi-centenary of the independence of Mexico from Spain and the centenary of the Mexican Revolution. It was organized by the Canadian/Irish poet Colin Carberry, in conjunction with the prestigious Colegio Linares, at which he teaches English. Other invitees included the Canadian writers and poets, Fraser Sutherland, Stephen Henighan, and octogenarian Kildare Dobbs; poet Kieran Furey from Ireland; and local writers and historians, Homero Adame and others. Invitees were honoured to read and speak at the Colegio, the local university, the museum, and on the radio. They thank Veronica Garza Flores for translating their work into Spanish.
