Other Events and Parties

The big September party is Mexican Independence Day, also known as fiestas patrias. On the eve of the 15th, at midnight, Sonorans will gather in plazas and town squares to shout "Viva Mexico!"

That rings in September 16th, Mexican Independence Day, and the parties will continue all day and into the early morning hours of the 17th.

But that's just the centerpiece of the month's parties - there are also events throughout the month, throughout Sonora, where you can relax and enjoy yourself.
