Cinco de Mayo

Brisbane's Best Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Sunday, 06 May 2018
12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cinco de Mayo at Riverlife is among the most festive Cinco de Mayo parties Brisbane offers! Attendees are immersed in the Fiesta as soon as they arrive at Riverlife. From the traditional Mexican music to salsa dance lessons to the pitchers of Sangria, Cinco de Mayo is a must do Brisbane event. This is a family-friendly event that has various activities for kids, such as the very popular face painting booth.

Originally, Cinco de Mayo was a day that commemorated the Mexican battle of Puebla where the French were defeated, and heritage, pride and national unity was restored. Today, Cinco de Mayo (the fifth of May) marks a celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, cocktails, and music. In creating our own tradition, our Cinco de Mayo falls annually on the Queensland Labour Day long weekend. So join us on this fine public holiday eve to bust out your sandals and sombreros for a banging day and night of celebrating all that is Mexican.
