Boston Cinco de Mayo Overview

Some historians claim the inspiration for Cinco de Mayo was an unlikely Mexican Army victory over the invading French in 1862. However, Mexicans in the United States contend that May 5th celebrations are uniquely American.

The first known celebrants of Cinco de Mayo were a group of Mexican-Americans and Latinos in California, who commemorated the culture of America’s nearest southern neighbor during the American Civil War. Today, in cities like Boston, Cinco de Mayo fuses margaritas, mariachis, and more, creating one of the most drunken cultural holidays on the American calendar.

Boston might be better known for beer and baseball than tequila and salsa dancing, but make no mistake, Beantown boasts a jam-packed program of Cinco de Mayo parties. Cinco de Mustache is one of those festive bashes, where attendees sport questionable looking facial hair while dancing to Great Scott’s eclectic line-up of live music.

Meanwhile, other Cinco de Mayo revelers choose Cinco de Mayo restaurants like Lolita Cocina & Tequila instead. There, hungry hombres and mujeres of all kinds enjoy top-notch, authentic Mexican ceviche, tacos, enchiladas, steak, and of course, margaritas.

Cinco de Mayo Boston 2018 might not be on many short lists for best cities to spend Cinco de Mayo. However, upon a second glimpse at Beantown’s eclectic lineup of Cinco de Mayo events, many people might reconsider where they will spend America’s favorite celebration of Mexican culture.
