El Grito de Independencia at Maize at the Station!

We cordially invite you to Champaign-Urbana's open event celebrating El Grito De Independencia. It is our goal to showcase and highlight Mexico's true and only Independence Day to our diverse community while allowing our Latin community and guests to celebrate it's heritage and culture.

Enjoy live music, arts and craft vendors and traditional folkorico dancers throughout the evening starting at 4PM. As well as traditional crafts for children and bilingual Storytelling.
Maize will be providing authentic Mexican cuisine, drink, and libations from their food truck and patio bar. The culmination of the event will be the traditional El Grito at 10PM. We look forward to seeing you there!
