Are you ready to party like it’s 1862? Seattle’s Ultimate Cinco de Mayo Festival is taking place this weekend and it’s going to be a fiesta you won’t forget!

For those who don’t know the official history, Cinco is a Mexican holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. 

Of course, everyone loves to celebrate by drinking and eating Mexican cuisine. So what’s a better way to celebrate this historic day than with music, food, and drinks in downtown Seattle?

The festival promises to deliver all of that and more. 

The unique 3-day event has mariachi, live music, Azteca dancers, DJ tunes, singers, salsa lessons, dancing, runaway drag, and lots of Encanto!

What’s more, there will be food and drinks available throughout the plaza as well as sit-down service.

The magic takes place from May 5th to the 7th at Harbor Steps Plaza. It’s free to attend and well worth checking out if you’re looking to have a lively weekend.
