Luchadores will take the ring over the lunch hour from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. and again beginning at 4 p.m. – 11 p.m.

After a one-year pandemic induced hiatus, the luchadores are charged and ready to take the ring at Elote’s 12th annual Cinco de Mayo Street Festival.

The event of the year returns to Tulsa’s iconic 5th and Boston Ave on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 12 p.m. - 11 p.m., with Lucha Libre wrestling, DJ, delicious signature drinks, puffy tacos, and outdoor kid’s activities for fun for the whole family.

The event, hosted by Elote Cafe and Catering, is a Tulsa staple and like many, owner Libby Billings is eager to see energy and life brought back to downtown Tulsa.

“Between mask wearing and largely serving guests via to-go and delivery food services, our team, luchadores and I have really missed seeing everyone’s faces,” Billing said. “We are excited to be able to bring laughter, fun, good food and cold drinks to our guests safely outdoors for a memory making Cinco de Mayo celebration.” 

The largely outdoor event has the stamp of approval from the Tulsa Health Department. While the city's mask mandate will be officially lifted, the festival will take up the whole block to allow for lots of safely distanced celebrating. Hand sanitizer stations and masks will be on hand for those who feel more comfortable, and masks are encouraged if safe distancing cannot be maintained.

Luchadores will take the ring over the lunch hour from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. and again beginning at 4 p.m. – 11 p.m. VIP packages are available, ranging from $500 - $1,000. E-mail or call (918) 582-1403 for reservations. For more information and details about the event, visit
