One of the largest celebrations of Mexican culture and history in the Midwest takes place the weekend of September 9-11 in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood.

The 27th annual Festival de La Villita is part of the Fiestas Patrias family of patriotic holidays held each year in Mexico. This fest specifically celebrates Mexico's independence from Spanish rule in September of 1810. It's also a celebration of families. Note: In 2016 the fest moves to its NEW LOCATION on the grounds of Plaza Garibaldi.

Festival de La Villita (aka Little Village Fest) offers something for everyone: top name local and regional music entertainment, food, carnival rides and more. In addition, on Sunday afternoon the fest is part of the neighborhood's popular annual happening that is the 26th Street Mexican Independence Day Parade.

To coincide with its new location at Plaza Garibaldi in 2016, the fest has added a ticketed Sunday afternoon concert. The headliners are Latin Grammy Award winner Ramon "King of the Accordion" Ayala, and the pioneering Mexican band Conjunto Primavera who won a Latin Grammy for Best Norteno Album in 2014.
