Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Westchester County

Raise a cerveza, enjoy mariachi, dig into delectable dishes, and celebrate Mexican heritage in Westchester with these Cinco de Mayo plans.

For the holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1862, we thought we’d suggest a couple of spots in Westchester where you can mount your own triumph.

Cantina Lobos

217 Wolfs Ln, Pelham; 914.380.8644

During its annual fiesta, this modern restaurant and bar in Pelham will celebrate with drink specials. Traditional Mexican music will be performed by Mariachi Sol Mixeco from 2-4 p.m. The eatery will also have Modelo, Corona, and frozen margarita specials on Friday and Saturday. Check out the outdoor seating attached to the Wolfs Lane Park for ice cream, nachos, and two-for-one Herradura Ultra Anejo sipping shots all weekend.

Vega Mexican Cuisine

189 E Hartsdale Ave, Hartsdale; 914.723.0100

The food at Vega is a flavorful nod to Mexico, from the classics (tacos, burritos, and enchiladas) to the bold (salmon Yucatan with avocado salsa, and grilled vegetables and rice). The restaurant will host a special from Friday to Sunday, with house margaritas for $8, bottled beer for $5, and house special tequila shots for $5. Cheers!
