Ganzo’s Cinco De Mayo 5K

Community Calendar

Join Ganzo’s for Iowa’s best Cinco de Mayo Fiesta and 5K on Saturday, May 1st, 2021!

Mexican culture is more than tacos and sombreros, it’s about diverse history, music, art, and family. At Ganzo’s, they’ve always had a desire to share our cultural heritage with the Quad Cities community, which is why we were the first to bring a Cinco de Mayo celebration to the QC

Ganzo’s quickly became the #1 place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the Quad Cities, and they promptly moved the live indoor Mexican band outdoors under a large tent. The Cinco de Mayo fiesta continues to grow and they have multiple live Mexican bands, bounce houses, face painting, jalapeño eating contests, piñatas, tequila tasting, and much more.
As the Cinco de Mayo fiesta grew, they also looked for ways to give back to the Quad Cities community. They revived the Nacho Ordinary 5K 9 years ago with a mission to donate the proceeds to local non-profits. Currently, they’ve raised over $35,000 through the Cinco de Mayo 5K with more than 1,200 participants.
