Mexican Independence Day Fiesta Coming Up Next Week
If you’re lucky to be in Mexico this month, join us for the biggest fiesta of the year! In celebration of Mexican Independence Day, we’ll be hosting a full week of culinary events related to traditional food from the region of Puebla. All next week, from Monday September 15th through 21st our guests will be able to try a great variety of dishes and set menus including the famous Chile en Nogada and our Chef’s special Mole.
We’ll be hosting a big fiesta on September 15th with a very traditional Mexican Buffet, live music and great ambiance. Other evenings we’ll be offering special set menus to give you an opportunity to try some new and adventuresome Mexican dishes.
It’s a great time to be in Cabo, because in addition to the beach and sun, you get to experience local culture and traditions. And in case you ever wondered why the Mexican Independence Day is celebrated both on the 15th and 16th of September (even though the official holiday falls on the 16th). In order to answer this question, here goes a bit of history:
After three centuries of Spanish oppression, the Mexican nation was getting ready to revolt against the Spanish rule. The plot, led by Catholic priest, Miguel Hidalgo, and army officer, Ignacio Allende, was discovered and Hidalgo was to be arrested. When he received the news, just before dawn on September 16th, 1810, he rang the church bells and called the Indians and mestizos to action by shouting “Mexicanos, viva Mexico!” (Mexicans, long live Mexico!). Since that day, every year at midnight on September 15th, Mexicans shout the “Grito” honoring this call to action that ended in our country’s independence from Spain.
On the 16th of September, you can expect to see military parades and special events throughout the country and Cabo San Lucas is no exception!
