Welcome to the most authentic El Grito celebration this side of Mexico. This El Grito Fiesta will sweep you into believing that you are smack dab in the center of Mexico City while you enjoy everything that this holiday fiesta has to offer.
El Grito (The Scream) is the day that Latino families celebrate Mexico’s 1810 independence from Spain. The scream was “Revolution!” Learn more about this piece of history as you take a historic walk through the El Grito Exhibit.
The two-day Fiesta is good family fun for all ages. Head out to the Grove for the Low Rider Car and Bike Show, a full soccer tournament and, if you want some real excitement, get tickets to Sunday's Jaripeo (Mexican rodeo).
Kids will have hours of entertainment on the carnival rides in the kids' area, playing Loteria or at a pinata party.
