- Considering the significant role that Mexican culture has played in creating San Antonio, it is little wonder that this is one of the city's most popular events. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Battle of Pueblo, a skirmish between Mexican and French forces that eventually led to Mexico's independence from France. Normally held on the weekend closest to May 5th in Market Square near downtown, the event hosts a crowd of thousands who come to enjoy authentic Tex-Mex food, live musical acts (including Mariachi bands), and arts and crafts, many of which are created in Mexico.
