This weekend, May 5 and 6, Civic Center Park will host the 31st annual Cinco De Mayo ‘Celebrate Culture’ festival. The event, which began as a small celebration, has grown into one of the largest Cinco De Mayo events in the world.
“The event is all about bringing people together and highlighting the beauty and tradition of the Latino culture.” Said Andrea Barela, President and CEO of Newsed. “Denver has such a rich Latino culture that is underrepresented in the event world. We are so proud to bring that to the heart of Denver, and highlight all the incredible Latino artists, musicians, performers, and businesses”, Barela added.
The two-day celebration will feature a parade, three stages of musical and dance performances, chihuahua races, a taco eating contest, a low rider car show, delicious food and drink, kids’ activities, local Latino artists, and so much more.
