Those walking tours sound great, here is one a bit closer to Anaheim you might look into as well.


There is also a huge Cinco de Mayo event at La Palma Park, 10 minutes from Disneyland on May 4-5.


Here is almost every Cinco de Mayo festival in the state.


Olvera Street might be the most fun because it is where Los Angeles was born, but you do have options.

Thank you all so much, very helpful info :)

WE are staying in Anaheim but do want to go to Universal Studios too, which I believe is quite a distance from there as we don't have a car would we be best booking a tour for the 5 of us, to go for the day or public transport or shuttle service? Hope to get front of line passes too, which I was told we can only get at the gate, is this the case? TIA

I can’t praise Casa Sánchez quite enough. They surely will have everything you are looking for celebrating Cinco de Mayo. The mariachi show is super fun – as someone who has traveled extensively through Mexico, I can tell the difference between the sort of cheesy, somewhat-patronizing portrayal of mariachis you might find elsewhere and what Casa Sánchez will offer you. The dance show is equally original. Seafood is amazing: everything is fresh, nicely seasoned and carefully prepared. The location could be better, but the interior decoration, the environment, and the spectacular food compensate that. And the best part is that this place is perfect for families. I had the feeling the pay particular attention to not letting customers go to hard on the sangria (specially young folks). They really try to keep this place with a family-friendly atmosphere so everybody can enjoy. This is a safe bet, you can trust me.
