[list] 5 de Mayo events in Bay Area [2024]

May 1 - May 5

Experience the largest 5 de Mayo calendar of events in Bay Area.

The holiday, commonly celebrated with feasts and fiestas, honors a historic military victory in which a vastly outnumbered Mexican army defeated a formidable French invasion during the 1862 Battle of Puebla.

Did you know it was first celebrated in the U.S. in California during the Gold Rush era in the town of Columbia (Tuolumne County) by the area’s Mexican migrant miners?
