Denver’s annual Cinco De Mayo festival is a wonderful way to celebrate culture and the Mile High City’s Latino population. Heading into its 35th year, it’s one of the most fun family-friendly events in town and welcomes thousands of attendees each year.
There will be two large stages featuring Latino music and dance like Cumba, Salsa, Mariachi, and Norteno. This year’s Cinco De Mayo Festival will be held from Saturday thru Sunday, May 4th to 5th, 2024 at Civic Center Park.
The park fills with vendors showcasing handcrafted items and Mexican folk art. Children will have loads of fun at the Children’s Carnival with rides and animals in a petting zoo. Of course, the event won’t be complete without mouthwatering cuisine choices like tacos, enchiladas, and burritos.
Other events include a taco eating contest, a Chihuahua race, a low-rider car show, and a Saturday morning parade. Another ca n’t-miss festival happening over the Kentucky Derby Weekend is TheBigWonderful, held in RiNo. It celebrates the weekend with local Colorado vendors, food, beer, and music.
