Visit Official Event Site

A two-day celebration of cultural independence with live music, dance, art, food, drink and more!

Join us at Thorn Brewing in Barrio Logan to celebrate Fiesta de Independencia! We have a full weekend of art, dance, history, live music, food and libations!

This event will celebrate Mexico Independence Day which is September 16th. This day is celebrated in Mexico because it marks the moment when Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest known as Father Hidalgo, made the first cry for independence. After a moving speech in the Mexican town of Dolores, Hidalgo took up the banner of the Virgin of Guadalupe, a Roman Catholic image of the Virgin Mary as she appears to Juan Diego, an indigenous Mexican believer who was later sainted by the church. While the fight for independence took 10 years before it was complete, this day celebrates the beginning and the man who's passion sparked the revolution to take back their country.

Proceeds from this festival will go to support The Family Health Centers of San Diego
