Mexico
Cinco de Mayo

Is Cinco de Mayo celebrated in Mexico?

I know we celebrate it in the United States as somewhat of novelty, and when I was younger, I assumed it was a huge deal—like, Fourth of July big—in Mexico. I’ve since heard it’s not a big deal at all there. What’s the deal?

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in Mexico, but not very widely. Oh, and it’s not their Independence Day—that’s September 16.

It’s the anniversary of a famous battle in Puebla, where on May 5, 1862, underdog Mexican forces defeated Napoleon III’s French troops. In the state of Puebla, and especially in the city of Puebla, you’ll see parades, speeches, and military reenactments on that day, but that’s about where Mexican celebrations stop.

Word reached Mexican-Americans in California soon after the battle, but celebrations in the United States remained localized until the 1980s, when alcohol companies started to promote the holiday.

Yes. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in Mexico, mainly in the area

of Puebla. It was in that area where the Battle of Puebla was won

by the Mexican forces in the French-Mexican War on May 5, 1862.
