Where? Mexico & USA

When? 3-5th of May, 2014

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated nationwide in the United States on May 5, and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called “The Battle of Puebla” (La Batalla de Puebla). This special date is observed in this country as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

Mexican-Americans and Latinos alike take great pride in their roots and have acknowledged, generation after generation, that the United States’ prosperity depends in part on the incorporation of immigrants into its society, culture and economy while at the same time adopting its values and way of life.

Cinco de Mayo is an opportunity for Americans to come together in celebration and to acknowledge the many contributions made by Mexicans, Mexican-Americans and Latinos o the United States.

In 2014 the 30th Annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta will occur on May 3rd, 4th and 5th.
