What to Do in Milwaukee—Cinco De Mayo Weekend


While Cinco De Mayo (May 5) historically commemorates the Battle of Puebla and the Mexican Army’s triumph over the French, it is often confused for Mexican Independence Day (September 16).

Through the years, Cinco de Mayo became a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage to Mexican-Americans in the U.S. Currently, Cinco De Mayo is observed by Mexicans and other ethnicities around the U.S., enjoying the culture, music and food of the land to our south.
