5/5: Cinco de Mayo Roundup

First things first— leave the sombrero at home. You’ll only embarrass yourself and insult others. It’s not cool.

What is cool, though, is all the celebrations Nashville has to offer for Cinco de Mayo.

Starting at noon, Rosepepper Cantina is throwing a parking lot party to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Music from La Rumba Madre begins at 2:30 p.m. The event is free and kid friendly.

There will be a similar event held in the Nations at 5001 Louisiana Ave. The party is free and the event includes food trucks, tacos, margaritas, and more. The festivities begin at 11 a.m.

Saturday night, the folks over at Little Harpeth are hosting a Cinco de Mayo party of their own. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and will feature music from Jack Berry, Scale Model, and Lauren Strange. More details are available on the event page.

Last, but certainly not least, is the second annual Tour de Taco, an 18-mile bike race that includes three stops at taco shops. The ride starts at Eastside Cycles and ends at Sevier Park Fest in 12 South. The riders will stop at Mas Tacos, Local Taco, and Bar Taco. Interested? More details, including registration, are available on the event page.
