Sycamore Cinco de Mayo Festival

Over the past 21 years Sycamore’s Cinco de Mayo festival has become a place for the community to gather and celebrate the Mexican heritage. Part of the success and prestige of the event is that all proceeds are put back into the community through local non-for-profits. Over the years, Sycamore Cinco de Mayo has raised over $160,000 for local non-for-profit agencies.

For this year’s 22nd anniversary our event begins Sunday afternoon beginning at 1:00 pm. We will be enjoying a family friendly event with live music, ethnic dancers, piñatas, pony rides, climbing wall, games, authentic Mexican cuisine, and fun that lasts all day!

Save the date for this year’s event on May 5, 2019. Sycamore’s Cinco de Mayo celebration would not be what it is today without the many volunteers, the Sycamore Chamber, the City of Sycamore, families that attend, and the generous support from area businesses. Please save the dates for our event and we hope to see you all there for the fun!

This free support group led by Masters Level Therapist Nicole Bowker and Board Certified Physical Therapist Kristin Christian is designed for anyone seeking support with any type of chronic illness or pain.
