CINCO DE MAYO

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration of Mexican culture and heritage that takes place across the U.S. and regionally in Mexico, where it's known in the state of Puebla as El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (“The Day of the Battle of Puebla”). Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's victory over the much larger, better-armed French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Los Angeles hosts a wide variety of Cinco de Mayo events, including the annual Los Lobos Cinco de Mayo Festival at the Greek Theatre. The Grammy Award-winning hometown favorites take the stage with special guests like Ozomatli, Mariachi El Bronx and more. The Greek Theatre Plaza Stage welcomes more music performances for a full day of music and celebration.
