Cinco de Mayo

Time for a fiesta! Cinco de Mayo Celebrates Mexican Heritage

Cinco de Mayo—the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Although Cinco de Mayo is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, festivities in the United States have evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Villanova University College of Liberal Arts and Sciences faculty experts can elaborate on the history of the holiday, as well as discuss the significance of the celebration in Mexico.
