Festival de Mayo
It’s strange to think that it’s already May, and in Austin, that means we’ve already celebrated plenty in 2019. From New Years to St. Patrick’s Day, and SXSW to Eeyore’s Birthday, this city has only just begun celebrating its myriad of holidays and festivals. Next up on the list, Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo never goes unnoticed in Austin, and for good reason. Almost a third of Austinites are of Mexican heritage, which is obvious given the amount of authentic food, music, artwork, and overall Mexican culture in general, that can be found at any given spot in our city. Sure, there will be bars along 6th street with deals on margaritas; there will be tourists in sombreros galivanting down South Congress Street. But after all the hullabaloo of celebrations on the fifth of May, Univision will be giving Austinites a chance to fully experience Mexican culture like no restaurant with a deal on enchiladas can.
Univision Austin is proudly presenting “Festival de Mayo.” On Sunday, May 19th, The Travis County Expo Center will transform into a venue that is fully ensconced with everything Mexico. This annual cultural celebration will give party goers an afternoon of fun games, numerous activities and the best selection of live Mexican music from the surrounding region. Headliners include Luis Coronel and La Zenda Norteña, but they will be joined by a host of talented musicians throughout the day.
The duration of the event is 11am-6pm, and because admission is free and open to the public, there is no reason not to drop by and celebrate Mexican culture in Austin in style.
