Tacos y Tamales Festival
August 18, 2017 @ 5:00 am - 10:00 pm
Green Curtain Events is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Tacos y Tamales Festival – a street affair based off a traditional Mexican market known as the Tianguis.
A Tianguis is an open air market or bazaar that is traditionally held on certain market days in a town or city neighborhood in Mexico and Central America. This bazaar tradition has its roots embedded well into the pre-Hispanic period of Latin American and continues, in many cases, essentially unchanged into the present day. The Tacos y Tamales Festival will feature the best and most authentic cuisine of Latin America, in a form that is both popular and familiar to the masses, Tacos and Tamales.
Festival goers will be immersed into the sights and smells of the Tianguis with local vendors selling their food, artwork, wares and an array of other items. The performance stage will feature live music throughout the weekend with traditional acts during the day, mince dance performances, and some higher energy Latin rock music into the night.
