Mex 1 Coastal Cantina in West Ashley is throwing their 6th annual Cinco De Mayo block party! Cinco De Mayo lands on a Saturday this year, so you don't want to miss this epic throwdown! Doors open at 4pm with live music at 4:30 with Brazilian beats by Duda Lucena, followed by the Reggae chart topping and City Paper voted 'Best Reggae Band', The Dubplates at 8pm. We will also be having some incredible performances by our local Capoeira group (a form of Brazilian Martial Arts), Maculele (an Afro-Brazilian Dance played with sticks and machetes), Samba dancing and a large drum circle. Lastly Brushfire Collective will be bringing the heat with a fire performance like you've never seen before. You do not want to miss Chucktown's largest Cinco De Mayo bash!
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door WHICH INCLUDES A FREE DRINK UPON ENTRY! We will have multiple outdoor bars and a food tent, so be ready for a fun night! A portion of proceeds from entry as well as a portion of money from our surfboard raffle will go to benefit our local Charleston Surfrider Chapter who helps to keep our beaches clean. Kids 12 and under are free and under 21 is $5. Since both parking lots are blocked off we encourage you to park next door at Rogue Motion/the old Ryan's or take any other form of transportation over like Uber, Lyft, bike or ride on in on a donkey.
Mex 1 Sullivan's Island will also be having a Cinco De Mayo bash as well with live music from Return of the Mac at 6:30 and DJ R-Dot after that and drink specials all day!
