Cinco de Mayo Festival Offers Exciting Activities in Moon Valley

Travel back in time more than 150 years ago, on May 5, 1862, when an astounding 4,000 Mexican soldiers held off 8,000 French and allied troops intent on re-establishing their governing power in the New World, and you’ll see for yourself why Cinco de Mayo is such an important celebration across the Mexican-American culture. Recognition of the Mexican holdout victory is still widely celebrated nearly two centuries later, as the annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration presented by Si Se Puede Foundation pays tribute to the Hispanic community's variety of contributions to the beautiful state of Arizona.

This exciting annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration is highlighted with the well-known Chihuahua Races along with the crowning of the King and Queen of Chihuahuas. But not only will there be exciting Chihuahua Races, there will be tons of fun music, tasty food, and enjoyable dancing at this full-family event!

The Cinco de Mayo Celebration will be held Saturday, May 3 at 100 E. Commonwealth Ave. at the Chandler Downtown Public Library Courtyard between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

This all-day event will feature:

  • Free Admission

  • Food and beverages offered with purchase

  • Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Día de los Niños Children’s Day will commence

  • From noon to 1:30 p.m., Chihuahua Race sign-ups will be available for all event guests
