Mark another year of Mexico’s independence from Spain at Mexican Fiestas Patrias events around Houston from Sunday, September 11 to Saturday, September 17, 2022.
Officially, Mexico’s official patriotic independence day holidays begin the evening of September 15, kicked off by the symbolic Grito de Dolores. The name comes from Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in the village of Dolores, whose call out (the grito) for an end to Spanish rule triggered the Mexican War of Independence in 1810.
Fifteen years later, the Republic of Mexico chose that historic event as the start of their independence, selecting the day that followed it, Diez y Seis de Septiembre, as Mexico’s Dia de la Independencia.
We’ve gathered a handful of the Fiestas Patrias events taking place around Houston, where you can catch stunning concert performances, folk dancing, and more.
