Why We Celebrate Mexican Independence Day
Many people who aren’t familiar with the history or traditions of Mexico are more likely to take part in more well-known Mexican holidays like Cinco de Mayo. Contrary to popular belief, Mexican Independence Day is not on May 5th. Those whose families came from Mexico to the follow the American Dream may be a little more familiar with Mexican Independence Day. We are here to fill you in! Keep on reading to learn more.
This History of Mexican Independence Day
We celebrate this day to remember the time Mexico won its independence from Spain. On September 16, 1810, Mexico's War of Independence officially started when the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang the church bell and cried out to the townspeople to join together, take up arms, and rise up against the Spanish Crown. This historical event is known as El Grito de Dolores (the cry of Dolores) because it took place in Guanajuato. In no time, people gathered together to form a large mob and marched their way to Mexico City to rebel against Spanish rule.
For over a decade, the Mexicans and Spaniards were at war. On August 24, 1821, the war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Córdoba, and Mexico finally put an end to three centuries of Spanish rule.
In Mexico, they celebrate Mexican Independence Day over two days.
On the evening of September 15th, the celebrations begin with a reenactment of “El Grito de Dolores” by the current president of Mexico and people begin to shout "Viva México!" The next day, on the 16th, is a day full of festivities and full of parades, food, and parties.

The Mexican Margarita at Costa Pacifica is back! We introduced you to this one of a kind ‘rita last year, and we had to bring it back once again. Inspired by the Mexican flag, this margarita boasts red, white, and green pride. We start with a layer of chamoy, add our signature frozen lime margarita, and top it off with fresh cucumber.
Even though Mexican Independence Day is on September 16th, we think this celebration deserves an entire month’s worth of celebrations. That’s why this special margarita will be running throughout September! Come visit Costa Pacifica in the Stone Oak area of San Antonio to try this limited-time margarita. You won’t be able to find it anywhere else!
