The main Mexican Independence Day celebration in the Delaware Valley

Don’t miss out on all the diverse cultural expressions of one of the most anticipated events of the year!

The Mexican Independence Day Festival is a vibrant celebration that pays homage to Mexico’s rich history and cultural heritage. This festival is a jubilant affair that brings communities together to honor the country’s declaration of independence on September 16, 1810, with the “El Grito” ceremony by the Consul of Mexico in Philadelphia.

At the heart of the festival, you will enjoy traditional dances from different regions of Mexico, live Mariachi music, and other musical bands on stage, adding to the festive atmosphere.

Prepare yourself for a feast for the senses with aromas of authentic Mexican cuisine wafting through the air, from tacos and tamales to churros and horchata. With a Beer Garden included, there’s something to satisfy every craving!

The celebration will also come alive with color, creativity, and craftsmanship! Our festival is a haven for art and craft enthusiasts, showcasing the talents of local artisans and creators.

Throughout the day, children can immerse themselves in Mexican culture through fun and games like the traditional Lotería and more!

As night falls, the festival reaches its crescendo with a spectacular fireworks display illuminating the sky, symbolizing the triumph of freedom and independence. It’s a time for joyous celebration and unity, as Mexicans come together to honor their past and embrace their vibrant heritage.
