Mexican Independence Day

Event Details

September 16: Cinco de Mayo may get a lot of press in the U.S., but the celebration of México’s battle over French forces at the Battle of Pueblo in 1862 generates little more than yawns in Los Cabos. México’s Independence Day, by contrast, is a huge deal in every town and city in the country, and is accompanied by affiliated events, las fiestas patrias, throughout the month of September. Honored each September 16, the holiday remembers Miguel Hidalgos “Grito de Dolores” in 1810, a cry for freedom from Spanish colonization that culminated 11 years later with México’s sovereign independence. Festivities kick off in cape cities San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas at 11 p.m. on September 15, with top political officials performing grito reenactments—which traditionally end with ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!—followed by fireworks and live music. The next day, large parades take place in both cities.  Contact CaboViVO by clicking on the the LEARN MORE BUTTON
