Cinco de Mayo

The General Zaragoza Society is well-known for our Cinco de Mayo banquet. This celebration is completely free to the public (free parking, free entertainment and free admission). Our society is named in honor of Ignacio S. Zaragoza, whose victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla is commemorated every year on May 5-Cinco de Mayo.

You can sponsor this or any other event. We offer sponsorship tiers from $1,000 to $7,000.
