September 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
The annual celebration of the Independence of Mexico now takes place in the streets of San Antonio outside Historic Market Square. The highlight of this musical, gastronomic and civic celebration is the historical re-enactment of Mexico’s call for independence from Spain. Drawing an audience of more than 3,000 celebrants in the last years, El Grito aims at becoming a long-standing tradition for San Antonio and an emblematic event for the entire community, regardless of their background, as well as one of the most significant celebrations of Mexico in the United States. Programming includes live Mexican music, Folklorico dancers, as well as food and craft vendors.
The mass on Monday starts at noon.
