UNIVISION AND LA GRAN PLAZA DE FORT WORTH® PRESENT “FIESTAS PATRIAS 2018” 

August 31, 2018 (Fort Worth, TX) — Univision and La Gran Plaza will celebrate the sound, culture and taste of México at La Gran Plaza de Fort Worth® on September 30, 2018 from 2:00PM to 9:00PM in honor of Mexican Independence Day.

The traditional “El Grito” will be the highlight of the festival and will be presided by Francisco de la Torre Galindo, Consul General of Mexico and accompanied by Fort Worth dignitaries and Mayor Betsy Price. The Mexican Independence Day celebration will feature live bands, Ballet Folklorico, food and more. Admission is free and open to the public. There will be indoor and outdoor stages and foot traffic will be managed through mall entrance #1.  

“The top three takeaways that I would like for our visitors to experience first-hand at our Fiesta Patrias event is great hospitality, food and a family-friendly event that visitors can feel comfortable bringing their whole families to. This event is an extension of La Gran Plaza; a place to gather and spend time with their families, sit down, relax and enjoy live music reminiscent of their hometown.” Said Miguel Calera, Director of Marketing for La Gran Plaza. 

The Mexican Independence Day celebration is known for the Grito de Dolores symbolizing Mexico’s War of Independence from Spain, later achieved in 1821.
