Downtown Phoenix is the best place in the Valley to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with not one, but two big parties happening right in the downtown core. Here’s what you can look forward to at each celebration.
Gather your friends for a fun fiesta when Chico Malo and Copper Blues take over the streets of downtown.
This year, Lil Jon headlines the massive 21+ party with a DJ, live musicians, dancers, artists, giant beer pong, a hot chili pepper eating contest and surprise guest appearances. The block party ends at 10 p.m., but you can stick around for the official after party at Copper Blues.
If you want to Snap Yo Fingers in the VIP area, tickets start at $100 and include five drinks, the Copper Blues Nacho Bar and access to exclusive viewing areas. Visit blockpartyoncentral.com for info on tickets.
