As always, we have a large list of San Francisco Cinco de Mayo events including parties, festivals, dinners, shows, etc. In 2016, Cinco de Mayo takes place on Thursday meaning events will likely take place through the following weekend.
It is a common misconception that Cinco De Mayo is Mexico’s answer to our own independence day. In actuality, Cinco De Mayo is celebrated to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Whatever your reason for celebrating, there is a lot to do in Seattle in honor of Cinco De Mayo.
