About Cinco De Mayo:

Originating from the Mexican victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, Cinco de Mayo has evolved far beyond its historical roots to become a widespread celebration of Mexican culture and heritage in the United States.

The observance of Cinco de Mayo in the U.S. began in the 1860s among Mexican miners in the West, who fired off rifles and fireworks upon hearing the news of Mexico’s triumph against the French. It served as a source of pride and hope for democracy during a time of hardship and conflict. Over the years, the day has taken on a broader significance, especially among Mexican-American communities, serving as a moment to honor their cultural heritage and promote ethnic consciousness during the Chicano Movement of the 1960s and 1970s.

By the 1980s and 1990s, Cinco de Mayo had been embraced by an array of people in the U.S., not just those of Mexican descent. It became an opportunity for all Americans to celebrate Mexican culture, cuisine, music, and traditions. This expansion was further propelled by marketing efforts from businesses, particularly those in the food and beverage industry, looking to capitalize on the festive atmosphere.

Today, Cinco de Mayo festivities in the United States include parades, music performances, pub crawls, parties and educational events that highlight Mexican history. Restaurants and bars often feature special menus with Mexican delicacies and drinks, and cities across the country host large celebrations that attract people from all backgrounds.

Despite its commercialization, at its core, Cinco de Mayo remains a day for Mexican-Americans to express pride in their heritage and for communities to come together in appreciation of a culture that is an integral part of the American fabric.
