It's Historic.

If you’re unsure about the significance of Cinco de Mayo, here are some facts. Cinco de Mayo refers to the Battle of Puebla, a decisive battle fought by the Mexican Army against the French invaders on May 5, 1862.

The Mexican soldiers were led by the heroic Texas-born General Ignacio Zaragoza. It was not the end to the war, but it was the first battle the Mexicans had won.

It became known as the turning point that gave hope to the people. The Mexicans eventually won their independence. The victory was celebrated in Mexico, as well as in the United States. Texans are still celebrating Cinco de Mayo as a true American tradition.

It's Cultural.

We celebrate the Cinco de Mayo with the Big Parade & Festival by showcasing our cultural heritage with music, dance, food, and activities that express and represent the spirit of the Cinco de Mayo - Battle of Puebla.

Let's Celebrate!

The Dallas Cinco de Mayo 2015 is expected to be the largest celebration in Dallas showcasing a parade, festival, main stage, tailgating, car show & more.
