‘Downtown Stockton to host Cinco de Mayo celebration’

Stockton is gearing up for a festive Cinco De Mayo celebration on May 4 and May 5 in downtown Stockton. The event, organized by El Concilio, a nonprofit organization that serves the Hispanic community in the Central Valley, will be held at the Weber Point Events Center.

The festival aims to showcase the region’s diverse cultures with an array of activities including food, drinks, games, live music, dancing, contests, live entertainment, car shows, and more. Last year, over 22 vendors tantalized attendees with the aromas of enchiladas, tacos, burritos, burgers, fries, and other Hispanic delicacies.

El Concilio reported that the previous year’s event was a huge success, attracting over 31,000 people. This year, gates will open at 11 a.m. on May 4, with a 5K Family Fun Run kicking off at 9 a.m. The day will conclude with a late-night concert and comedy event lasting until 8 p.m.

On May 5, gates will open at 10 a.m. for the annual parade, which will run until 6 p.m. The festivities promise something for everyone, emphasizing the vibrant and diverse community of Stockton. Don’t miss this colorful and lively celebration of culture and heritage!
