It’s not every year that the 5th of May falls on a Tuesday but it sure would have been a perfect day to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at your favorite Mexican restaurant (or Irish Pub for that matter) had the Coronavirus not shut down our ability to party alongside friends and strangers. Of course, you can easily make your own tacos and Margaritas at home or bring some home from your favorite Southwest, Tex-Mex, or Mexicano restaurant – many of whom will sell you even the mixers and tequila to get you started. Here are three events to keep you entertained while you’re downing your favorite foods on this otherwise popular drinking holiday.
Altísimo Live! Supports Farmworkers
This Cinco de Mayo, a coalition of internationally renowned music artists, celebrities, media companies, and farmworker-serving organizations are uniting via livestream for the Altísimo Live!

The festival will also highlight stories from the laborers, as well as messages of gratitude and appreciation, with an overall goal of driving combined and collaborative action to support the farmworkers.
Actor, producer, director, and activist Eva Longoria is co-hosting alongside iHeartLatino Chairman and Chief Creative Officer Enrique Santos. Other celebrity co-hosts throughout the livestream benefit festival will include J Balvin, Kate Del Castillo, Rosario Dawson, and Alejandro Sanz.
