Events in Bangkok to celebrate Cinco de Mayo 2024

As they say in Spanish, “¿Cómo se llama, bonita? Mi casa, su casa, Shakira, Shakira.” Let’s get loud at these Cinco de Mayo events in Bangkok.

Fight fire with fire — Bangkok’s intense heat wave calls for something even hotter. As Cinco de Mayo arrives, it’s a great opportunity to get out and savour a grand feast with drinks and tacos to boot. Whether you actually celebrate the occasion or not, it makes for a great excuse to get together with some company anyway. Here are some great places to be.
