Cinco De Mayo
The Roswell Hispano Chamber of Commerce co-sponsors this event with the City of Roswell Parks and Recreation Department and the Tobosa Developmental Services. Cinco de Mayo is held the first Sunday in May. The Cinco de Mayo celebration event began in May, 1995 and has been celebrated on an annual basis since its inception.
Piñatafest is a three-day event, celebrated the second weekend of September and is held on the lawn of the Chaves County Courthouse. This event brings the community together and draws visitors from different parts of the country. The intent is to educate everyone about the Mexican culture through entertainment, food, dancing and the making and breaking of Piñatas. This is a family oriented event that promotes unity within our communities, to include Dexter, Hagerman and Lake Arthur along with teachers and students working together to make Piñatas for the festival.
