Houston loves to celebrate in style! The upcoming Cinco de Mayo holiday is no exception. Our beautiful city is hosting an array of events throughout the day. Join in the fun at one of these three festive Cinco de Mayo celebrations in Houston near Tiburon Apartments.
CINCO DE MAYO HOUSTON
Downtown Houston is the place to be for one of the best Cinco de Mayo celebrations in Houston. The event is located in the cultural heart of Houston and is a collaborative effort of the Mayor’s office and downtown businesses. This is your opportunity to come dressed in the spirit of the holiday. Numerous vendors and watering holes within walking distance will highlight the holiday with special sales, drinks, snacks, and more.
Cinco de Mayo Houston is a free event on Saturday, May 5th, from 1 PM to 11 PM.
CINCO IN THE CITY
The Warehouse at Silver Street will morph into a Mexican town sporting papel picados, string lights strung from the ceilings, and a La Plaza, a traditional town square. The event features local Mexican American vendors showing their crafts as well as regional authentic food from such favorites as La Cuchara and Jarritos. Menus include aguas frescas, churros, street corn, popcorn, and more.
There will also be live music, folklorico, and Aztec dancers, as well as pinatas, art, face painting, Frida Kahlo puppets, and guest appearances from Lucha Libre stars.
General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Cinco in the City is at Silver Street Studios on Saturday, May 5th from 11 AM to 3 PM.
CINCO DE MAYO CRAWFISH FEST
If you’re looking for something a little different, head to Cinco de Mayo Crawfish Fest. Located at Veterans Retreat Center, this festival event includes live music, bounce houses, vendors, a DJ, and of course – lots and lots of crawfish dishes. General admission is $15, and a portion of the proceeds benefit veterans in need. Cinco de Mayo Crawfish Fest is on Saturday, May 5th from 2 PM to 10 PM.
