Fiestas Patrias

In the United States, it is commonly believed that Cinco de Mayo is Independence Day for Mexico. However, Fiestas Patrias held on Diez y Seis de Septiembre (September 16) is Mexico’s true Independence Day, and it’s celebrated to commemorate the country’s freedom from Spain.

Fiestas Patrias begins with festive parties the night before and continues into the next day to honor Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla’s cry for independence, which called for the end of Spanish rule.

Today, the national holiday is filled with traditional songs, festive costumes and delicious cuisine—including Chiles Relleños.
