Viva México! El Grito Chicago, a vibrant celebration of Mexican Independence Day, is coming to Grant Park in downtown Chicago, Saturday, September 14th to Sunday, September 15th, 2024. This marks a significant moment for the city and its thriving Mexican community, as it’s the first time in over a decade that this iconic celebration takes place in downtown Chicago.
You can expect a celebration of Mexican history and culture and gastronomy, performances featuring national and local talents including Mariachis and ballet folclórico on the Petrillo Bandshell, authentic Mexican food, beverages and merchandise, as well as special family experiences in collaboration with local organizations and a kids area with inflatables, games & crafts.
