Fiestas Patrias

In Texas, Mexican Americans celebrate the Mexican national holiday referred to as Fiestas Patrias, also called Dieciseis de Septiembre. It commemorates Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla’s grito de Dolores who called for the end of Spanish rule in Mexico. In 1825, the Republic of Mexico officially declared Dieciseis de Septiembre its national Independence Day.

Mexican Americans began celebrating Fiestas Patrias to reinforce their cultural links with each other and with Mexico. They included festivities that involved special music, songs, dances, native cuisine, costumes, and homage to folk heroes.

Traders Village will continue that holiday tradition at the market by celebrating FIESTAS PATRIAS on September 13th. The celebration will have FREE live concerts featuring mariachi bands, folkloric ballet, regional Mexican bands and lots of traditional foods!

Admission to Traders Village if FREE and only $5.00 to park. Traders Village is centrally located in Grand Prairie, Texas off Highway 360 on Mayfield Road.
