    Council President Pro Tempore Nury Martinez proudly presents El Grito Los Angeles 2019 featuring Los Tigres del Norte

    El Grito will take place at the City Hall Spring Street steps and Grand Park on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, beginning at 5 p.m. This is the City’s 80th El Grito event and will feature additional musical acts, food and art vendors, and kids’ activities that will be revealed in the coming weeks, along with details of a planned voter registration drive.

    Councilwoman Nury Martinez is the City’s 2019 El Grito Madrina (Sponsor). Martinez is the first Latina to serve as Council President Pro Tem, and represents Council District 6, in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.

    El Grito (The Cry of Dolores) celebrates Mexican Independence from Spain in 1810 and commemorates the moment Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang the bell of his church and gave the pronunciamiento (call to arms) that triggered the Mexican War of Independence.

    The City of Los Angeles is home to the second-largest population of Mexicans outside of Mexico City. Councilwoman Martinez is a proud second-generation American whose family hails from Zacatecas, Mexico.

    “With Los Tigres Del Norte as our headliner, El Grito Los Angeles 2019 promises to be an exceptional night to celebrate our Mexican heritage, pride and culture here in the great City of Los Angeles,” said Councilwoman Nury Martinez. “I invite all Angelenos to come out and listen to incredible music and celebrate our City’s greatest asset: our diversity.”
