Cinco de Mario is coming to Scottsdale on May 5th, 2018, thanks to TV star and Emmy Award-winner Mario Lopez. This Cinco de Mayo-inspired festival will take place at Scottsdale Civic Center Plaza from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"I am inviting all of Arizona to this fantastic fiesta. If you're like me, you work hard, play hard, and love to enjoy good food and drinks with friends and family, and Cinco de Mario is the place to do just that,” he says.
Cinco de Mario will feature an authentic mercado where attendees can shop for Mexican gourmet goods in a farmer's market-like setting, taco trucks galore, kid’s craft zone, rosé wine tasting garden, craft beer cantina, and more. Attendees can compete in the "Saved By the Bell" Look-a-Like contest, judged by Lopez himself, and enjoy live entertainment throughout the day, including a performance by The Sugarhill Gang at 1 p.m.
