“¡Dos cervezas, por favor!” The mariachi bands are warming up and the Luchador wrestlers are flexing their muscles to get ready for this weekend’s Cinco de Mayo at the Casa de Amigos fiesta in Vancouver! On Friday, May 5, 2017 and Saturday, May 6, 2017, you’re invited to take part in the largest outdoor party to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Vancouver.
Whatever your tastes, there’s something for everyone at this year’s event, including a street market, live music, traditional folk dancers, Luchador wrestlers, and more. The event is also fully licensed, so you can celebrate with your favourite cerveza!
Tickets for the Casa de Amigos Cinco de Mayo celebration are available online for $ 18.25, which gets you an authentic Mexican experience in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. We need a little reminder of the sun of Mexico these days, and you’ll feel like you’ve hopped a plane to Mexico with the colourful decorations, crafts, and wall hangings that will adorn the space.
The Cinco de Mayo at the Casa de Amigos fiesta will be professionally catered with gourmet street style tacos, ceviche, churros, and other handheld Mexican delights. If all that eating makes you thirsty, there will also be a wide variety of Mexican liquors will be available in the beverage garden, complete with tequila & mescal samplings, best margarita/tequila cocktail competitions, and other cerveza options.
And what would a Mexican fiesta be without a little Luchador wrestling? Live matches will take place throughout the event in the full size wrestling ring set up specifically for the event. Maybe you’ll even get to participate if you ask nicely…
For those interested in adding a little shopping experience with their celebrations, there will also be a Mexican style street market with fun trinkets, colourful blankets and clothing and more exciting items for you to peruse.
If you’re more interested in celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a simple plate of tacos, you could also head over to the Tacofino Taco Bar in Gastown to celebrate in a more subdued manner. Whatever your style, Cinco de Mayo is always a good excuse for a night of tacos, tequila, and good times!
