14 – Mexican Charro Day
Established in 1934, Mexican Charro day, or Día del Charro, is celebrated in Mexico on September 14. Often overshadowed by Mexico Independence Day on September 16, this day recognizes those who practice the art of charrería. Throughout most major cities in Mexico, you will find these traditionally trained cowboys (known as Charros) parading through town dressed in elaborate suits, while the women charros (known as Escaramuzas) wear vibrantly colored dresses.
15 – El Grito de Dolores
Every year on September 15, Mexico celebrates El Grito de Dolores (AKA Cry of Dolores). El Grito was the battle cry of Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in the early morning hours of September 15, 1810, in what is now the City of Dolores Hidalgo in the State of Guanajuato. Hidalgo’s cry to his townspeople to rise up against the Spanish became the cry of Independence for the whole country. Each year on this date, the President of Mexico re-enacts this famous cry from the balcony of the National Palace in Mexico City while ringing the same bell that Hidalgo rang in 1810 (which has since moved to the National Palace), shouting “Viva México! Viva la Independencia! Vivan los héroes!” Here in Los Cabos, City Officials re-enact their own version of the cry at 11pm on September 15 followed by fiestas late into the night.
14-15 – Independence Day Parties with Mariana BO and DJ Flight at OMNIA Los Cabos

16 – Mexican Independence Day
Contrary to popular belief, May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) is not Mexico's Independence Day. The actual date of Mexico’s Independence is September 16. Independence Day is one of the most celebrated national holidays in Mexico and is commemorated with colorful parades, traditional food, lively music, marching bands, fireworks and fiestas decorated in red, white and green. Here in Cabo, you will find almost every bar, restaurant, and resort in town doing something festive to honor this special day including an explosive firework show on Medano Beach!
