East Los Angeles Mexican Independence Day Parade & Festival
Sunday, Sep. 18th, 2022
Committed to Excellence
For 75 years, nearly 100,000 East Los Angeles and surrounding communities lined up along iconic Cesar Chavez Blvd. to watch school bands, equestrian units, folkloric groups, floats, and dignitaries, celebrating Mexican Independence Day.
The Parade is one of the largest and longest-running Mexican Independence Day Parades. A Parade theme is chosen yearly to reflect the past, present, and future of the Hispanic Community. The Mexican Federations' participation and the Community significantly impacted our Parade due to their elaborate floats, costumes, and live music representing different Mexican states.
Every year we have the pleasure of many guests joining our parade route and the VIP reception.
