Cinco de Mayo is a family-friendly and alcohol-free celebration held by Mexican and Latin American communities in memory of the victorious Battle of Puebla that happened on the fifth of May in 1862 when Mexicans defeated French. In San Francisco, the main focus of these festivities is the demonstration of Latin and Mexican cultures, including the best foods, artistry, dance, and music. You will be able to dance salsa and play Latin Percussion and other musical instruments. Furthermore, the festival offers a number of interesting craft engagements such as beading or weaving.

The festival takes place every year on Saturday around the 5th of May and draws up to 10,000 visitors.
