Mexican Independence History:

Shortly before dawn on September 15, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla made a monumentous decision that revolutionized the course of Mexican history. Hidalgo, a Catholic priest in the village of Dolores, ordered the arrest of Dolores’ native Spaniards. Then Hidalgo rang the church bell as he customarily did to call the Indians to mass. Hidalgo called the Indians and mestizos to retaliate against the hated gachopines, or native Spaniards, who had exploited and oppressed Mexicans for ten generations. More History follows here

FREE Admission!!!!!

The Mexican Independence Festival features Mexican Music, Clowns, Piñatas, Games, Face Painting, Community Resources Exhibit, Information Booths, Crafts, Food, Merchandise, and much more!
