Olé! Cinco de Mayo Fiesta at the Toledo Zoo


Be transported south of the border to celebrate Mexico’s rich heritage with a traditional fiesta on Sunday, May 5 at the Toledo Zoo’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration!


Cinco de Mayo literally translates to the fifth of May but it is much more than simply a calendar date. On May 5, 1862 underdog Mexican forces defeated the powerful French Army at the Battle of Puebla. While the battle was not a huge strategic win, it was a moral, patriotic and unifying victory.


The Toledo Zoo is celebrating that victory with a traditional Mexican fiesta on Sunday, May 5. There will be live entertainment from El Corazón de Mexico Folklorico Dance Group, music provided by DJ Tony Rios, piñata, Mexican paper flower crafts and other fun activities.


The activities will take place on the Main Plaza from 11a.m. – 3 p.m. Rain plan is Malawi Event Center. The full schedule of activities can be found at toledozoo.org/cinco.


This family-friendly fiesta is free with Zoo admission.
