Treasure Island’s First Cinco de Mayo Celebration Draws A Crowd

Published on May 16, 2024

A new tradition is born on Treasure Island. Gold Bar Distillery held their first Cinco de Mayo celebration drawing people from both sides of San Francisco Bay. An outdoor stage was set up against a backdrop of the stunning city skyline, Bay and sunset views, while live music filled the air from Mariachi Mi Mexico, Banda 300 and Farsante Rock & Alternative. A traditional dance performance entertained guests, some of whom took to the dance floor themselves. 

“A lot of our guests asked us to do it. A bunch of them said, ‘Hey, throw a Cinco de Mayo party this year.’ And we said great idea, let’s do it,” Elliott Gillespie, President of Gold Bar Distillery, told CBS News, which was on hand for the celebration. Gold Bar crafted a menu of limited-edition cocktails and food inspired by popular Mexican cuisine.

Treasure Island’s restaurants and bars, including Gold Bar and Mersea, host recurring weekly events and special holiday celebrations. Keep track of all the happenings here, and check out the ferry schedule to enjoy the ~8-minute scenic ride from Downtown San Francisco to Treasure Island. 

The island is in the midst of a visionary transformation, set to welcome thousands of new residents this year alone. Over 1,000 new homes will be available for lease and sale in 2024, offering homeowners the opportunity to enjoy a vibrant mix of restaurants and cultural spaces, surrounded by scenic parks and miles of trails, all within close reach of the city.
