A New Twist on Sycamore’s Cinco de Mayo

For over 20 years, Sycamore’s Cinco de Mayo has been providing an opportunity to celebrate the Hispanic culture through food, entertainment, and family activities, all while creating awareness and raising money for the local non-profit community. Last year we had to cancel the event for the first time in the event’s history due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

We are excited to share that we are moving forward with a modified event for 2021 on Sunday, May 2, 2021 with Sycamore Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Packs to Go! All of our fan favorites packaged together to create and enjoy a fiesta at home. While the “event” will look different, the intent to celebrate the Hispanic culture and raise money for the non-profit community remains the same. 

“We are so happy to be able to continue to carry on the tradition of  Cinco de Mayo for 2021,” said Jesus Romero, Sycamore’s Cinco de Mayo Founder.  “Keeping our community safe is our number one priority, and the new format for this year’s event will allow everyone to ‘fiesta’ safely at home.  We hope to celebrate with the community once again in person in 2022.” 

Starting now through April 25, guests can reserve their taco fiesta that includes Cinco de Mayo favorites to create the perfect party at home, at a park, at your neighbors or wherever the Fiesta leads you.  Visit sycamorecincodemayo.org to select your party favorites to create your custom event. Items will be available for pick-up at Taxco Restaurant on Sunday, May 2 between 1-5 pm. 

Over the years, Sycamore’s Cinco de Mayo has raised over $190,000 for the non-profit community and built up two endowments that will provide financial support for years to come: the Sycamore Cinco de Mayo Endowment with the DeKalb County Community Foundation for the Community Works Program; and the Jesus Romero Hispanic Scholarship with the Kishwaukee College Foundation.

If you are interested in being a part of this annual community event, sponsorships are available.  Please visit sycamorecincodemayo.org for more information or contact Jesus Romero directly at  (815) 895-2545 or sycamorecincodemayo@gmail.com
