Join TV Star Mario Lopez for Cinco de Mario, a crazy, new fiesta right in the heart of Scottsdale. Blending event elements inspired by Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, and Lopez' penchant for having fun, this experiential festival at Scottsdale Civic Center Plaza will include something for everyone.
From top taco trucks and bars featuring top-shelf margaritas, to a craft-focused kid's zone and strolling mariachi bands, this festival is a new kind of Cinco celebration that invites everybody to enjoy a day out in the AZ sunshine. VIPs will enjoy access to The Mansion, a Derby-themed VIP area, where all the Churchill Downs action will be screened. Plus, an Authentic Mercado featuring a handmade tortilla station, carne and pollo asada stations, ceviche bar, a salsa section, and desserts as well as arts, crafts, and local artists painting new and unique pieces live onsite. Meanwhile, rosé wine lovers can let their palettes run wild in the Vino Rosé wine tasting garden; and craft beer lovers can hop around our cozy craft beer tasting area.
Don't miss a special Cholofit Yoga Class led by comedian Frankie Quinones, or a special appearance by actor and taco/donut impresario, Danny Trejo. Plus, Mario Lopez himself will be strolling the festival grounds and emceeing much of the action on the main stage.
