Mexican Independence Day is a Mexican national holiday in celebration of Mexico’s independence from Spain. Mexico achieved independence in 1821, but Mexican Independence Day also commemorates the establishment of the Mexican independence movement in 1810 by the Mexican revolutionary known as Father Hidalgo. Celebrations of Mexican Independence Day often involve parades, concerts, rodeos, and dancing. In the US, Mexican Independence Day is sometimes—but should not be—confused with Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday on May 5 that celebrates the victory of Mexican forces over the French during the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. When is Mexican Independence Day? Mexican Independence Day is observed each year on September 16. Find out why National Hispanic Heritage Month also begins in the middle of September.
