Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held this year on Wednesday, May 5, 2021. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Army at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. More popularly celebrated in the United States than in Mexico, the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.
