September is one of the favored months in Mexico, because the national holidays are celebrated to the maximum! Each September 15 and 16, our Mexican pride pumps stronger than ever through our veins and in every corner of the country there are colorful fiestas full of excitement and music.
If you’re looking for a city to celebrate this Mexican Independence Day that you will feel the Mexican pride, we recommend Monterrey! The gorgeous “Sultana del Norte” is filled with celebrations and fiestas on every street corner during our national holidays. You’ll feel the festive feelings in all of the restaurants, bars, pubs, hotels, public squares, city streets and houses that’ll be filled with music, Mexican flags, and delicious food to commemorate our Mexican Independence Day.
One of the most traditional and crowded places to experience the patriotic Independence Day celebrations in Monterrey, of course, is the Macroplaza, located right in the heart of downtown. The Macroplaza is a place you cannot miss on your next visit in Monterrey because here you’ll find the most important attractions in Monterrey such as: the Government Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Museum of Contemporary Art - also known simply as "MARCO", the Museum of the Northeast and the Metropolitan Museum of Monterrey, among other cultural and artistic venues. It’s also one of the entryways to the picturesque Santa Lucia Promenade, where you can board a boat to reach the iconic Fundidora Park.
This Mexican Independence Day, beginning as early as the afternoon the Macroplaza will be full of activities that will include children's shows, folk dances and lively music. At 11 o’clock pm, in the Government Palace, the governor of the state of Nuevo León will give the traditional battle cry, “grito”, of Independence, which is undoubtedly the most exciting moment of the Mexican Independence Day celebrations in Monterrey and throughout Mexico. To close the night on an even more exciting note, a firework display will show along with musical groups that will keep the fiesta going until dawn, in true Mexican style!
If you think the parties end at dawn, you’d be wrong – the Mexican Independence Day celebrations don’t end until the following day after the 11am military parade takes place along the city streets of Monterrey.
