In Mexican history, Grito de Dolores (or "Cry of Dolores") was shouted in 1810 by Miguel Hidalgo y Castillo, a Roman Catholic priest, in the town of Dolores. That shout ("Grito") is widely acknowledged as the beginning of Mexico's War of Independence again Spanish rule.

The Chicago area's large Mexican community will celebrate El Grito de Dolores for an evening at this sprawling outdoor fest in Harrison Park with plenty of music, food, a kids' area and family fun.

El Grito kicks off with entertainment from a main stage featuring a lineup that includes bands performing all types of lively music: from Norteno and Tejano to Mariachi and Ranchera.

In addition, Chicago's acclaimed National Museum of Mexican Art, located inside Harrison Park, will be a major event participant.
