Fun Fact: It is not true that Cinco De Mayo is what is commonly thought to be Mexican Independence Day (September 16th), but is instead the celebration of the unlikely defeat of French forces by the Mexican Army in 1862.
It is true, however, that Cinco De Mayo is one of the most celebrated Mexican culture holidays overall, and you don't even have to travel to Mexico to celebrate (though we can do that for you too). There are plenty of authentic celebrations throughout the U.S, major cities in most states across the country hosting some sort of event, festival, or exhibit. So how do you even begin to choose where to go?
