Friends of Taxco

Established 1963

Canoga Park's Sister City Since 1963

The Friends of Taxco is a Sister City organization linking citizens of Canoga Park, California, USA, with their sister city, Taxco de Alarc√≥n, Guerrero, Mexico.  We are a recognized 501 (c)(3) organization by the IRS.

Since June, 1963, the citizens of these two communities have enjoyed a close personal relationship supported by annual personal visitations between families of the two cities. The people of Taxco, members of the 'Comite de Ciudades Hermanas de Taxco' have generously welcomed visitors from Canoga Park into their city and offered them an intimate personal view of Mexico.

The people of Canoga Park in turn, have welcomed visitors from Taxco into their homes and have offered support for the schools and students of Taxco.  Through this personal linkage between families, an insightful understanding of the culture of the two communities has been gained by the people of these two vastly different sister cities.
