Fiestas Patronales in Cabo San Lucas

Event Details

October 17 to 20:  Sammy Hagar aside, the biggest birthday in Cabo San Lucas this October is that of the Land’s End city itself, which turns 478 years young on October 18th. The written history of Cabo San Lucas began in 1541 when Spanish sea captain Francisco de Bolaños, patrolling the area under the orders of explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo and conquistador-in-chief Hernan Cortes, discovered the future vacation destination and named it according to the Catholic calendar…October 18th being the official feast day of Saint Luke. Before Bolaños showed up, the place was simply referred to as Ballenas (the Spanish word for whales) on nautical charts. Each year to honor its birth a series of local events are held in Cabo San Lucas–this year scheduled for Oct. 17th to 20th–including a parade down the main street of Marina Blvd. Such festivities are common in Spanish speaking countries, where they’re called fiestas patronales.
