People gathered at Civic Center Park in downtown Denver to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo Festival at Civic Center Park in Denver on May 28, 2024.

The annual festival and celebration helps spotlight Mile High City’s vibrant Latino population. This year’s festival featured live music and dance performances on three stages. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of the outnumbered Mexican army over French forces, giving the Mexican people momentum and national confidence to drive foreign power out of their country.

Today, Cinco de Mayo celebrates the tradition of freedom and recognizes the beauty of Latino culture. Denver’s Cinco de Mayo “Celebrate Culture” Festival has been a Mile High tradition for more than thirty years.
