Fun Cinco De Mayo Bunco Party Hosting Ideas

For those unfamiliar with the game, Bunco is all about good company, lively dice rolls, and a dash of friendly competition. And what better occasion to gather your friends for a fun-filled evening than Cinco de Mayo? This post contains affiliate links for different product ideas.

So, if you're thinking of hosting your very own Cinco de Mayo Bunco bash, here are some ideas to make it an unforgettable fiesta:

  • Check out our colorful Cinco De Mayo Bunco Party Printables that include everything you need to play the game (score cards, tally sheets, table cards and more). Each of our sets come with 4 and 6 rounds versions already included. If you need a customization or play with a different number of rounds, just let us know and we can edit them for you!

Decorate with Fiesta Flair: Think vibrant colors, papel picado banners, sombreros, and cacti centerpieces. Set the mood with festive music and maybe even a piñata or two! You can purchase some cheap papel picado banners on Amazon to really make your party come to life! 


The more color....the better! Decorate with some fun banners, pom poms and pennants to make your fiesta party really come to life!

Serve Mexican-Inspired Eats: It's all about the food, right? Whip up a spread of tasty Mexican dishes like tacos, nachos, guacamole, and salsa. And let's not forget the margaritas—both classic and fruity flavors—to keep the celebration going!

Don't mix up your drink glasses! I know that at any party I host, people never know which glass is theirs. Give each guest their own fiesta magnetic glass marker and drink glasses won't be getting mixed up at your party!


Prizes Fit for a Fiesta: Spice up your prize table with Mexican-themed goodies like mini piñatas, colorful maracas, or bottles of tequila. Award prizes for Bunco champions, most creative dice rolls, and best Cinco de Mayo attire.

Cinco de Mayo Crafts: Set up a crafting station where guests can make their own papel picado banners or decorate mini sombreros. It's a great way to keep everyone entertained between rounds of Bunco.

Capture the Moment: Don't forget to snap some photos throughout the evening to commemorate the fun. Set up a photo booth with props like sombreros, mustaches, and fiesta-themed signs for hilarious snapshots.

Parting Favors: Send your guests home with a little piece of the fiesta—a mini bottle of hot sauce, a bag of Mexican candies, or a personalized margarita glass.

    Hosting a Cinco de Mayo Bunco night is not only a unique way to celebrate the holiday but also a guaranteed recipe for a good time with friends. So, grab your dice, don your sombrero, and get ready to shout "Bunco!" in true fiesta fashion!

    Have a fun FIESTA Bunco Party!
