Chicago Events: Celebrate South-of-the-Border Culture at Viva Cinco de Mayo

Discover a vibrant Cinco de Mayo festival all weekend long at Toyota Park in Bridgeview. Viva Cinco de Mayo is a family-friendly event that showcases the colorful south-of-the-border culture with three days of music and fun.

From May 5 through May 7, bands from the Chicago area and all over the country will be performing a wide variety of music on two stages, from traditional Mexican songs to contemporary hits and classic rock.

Enjoy delicious Mexican food and beer, and shop for unique handmade crafts and artwork from local and regional artists. Viva Cinco de Mayo also features plenty of fun activities for the kids, including a huge carnival packed with rides: bumper cars, a Ferris wheel, slides, a tilt-a-whirl, plus special rides for little tots.

Tickets to Viva Cinco de Mayo include free parking and can be purchased online for $10 for adults and $5 for children.
