Celebrate Fiestas Patrias with music, dance and "El Grito" reenactment at CMH

September 9, 2021
Ballet Folklórico Las Américas to perform vibrant dances of Mexico!

Join Children’s Museum Houston for fiesta, freedom and ballet folklórico as we commemorate Mexico’s “Fiestas Patrias.”

On Sept. 15, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo climbed atop a church and encouraged people to fight for Mexico’s independence – declared the following day.  This “cry” for liberty marks Miguel Hidalgo’s famous “Grito de Dolores,” and it’s celebrated with music, fireworks and parades.

Children's Museum Houston welcomes visitors to join in fun with a family-friendly event featuring mariachi, ballet folklórico and a reenactment of "El Grito" on September 18.
