New York Cinco de Mayo Overview

Cinco de Mayo is not a commemoration of Mexico’s Independence Day. A group of Mexican-Americans and Latinos in California first celebrated Cinco de Mayo during the American Civil War. Though the celebrants dedicated the day to Mexican culture and history, Cinco de Mayo was unique to good old U.S. of A.  

Cinco de Mayo has become one of the rowdiest holidays on the American calendar, spanning far beyond the country’s Mexican and Latino populations. There’s no better example of the mariachi madness that takes place once a year in May than Cinco de Mayo New York 2018.

The Big Apple boasts a plethora of Cinco de Mayo events, including the Cinco de Mayo Street Fair outside of Grand Central Terminal. There, amigos and amigas enjoy a traditional New York City street fair – featuring food, jewelry, clothing, crafts, art, and apparel – with seasonal, Mexican flavor.

Thirstier Cinco de Mayo celebrants head to Cinco de Mayo bars across the city like La Esquina in Chinatown and Cascabel Taqueria East in the Upper East Side. Both establishments – as well as countless other New York Mexican restaurants – offer zesty margaritas that provide enough liquid courage for drinkers to get up and dance the night away.

Widely considered the most important city in the world, New York City is not surprisingly one of the most caliente places to spend Cinco de Mayo in 2018.
