Event Details

Arizona’s best tamalemakers will help celebrate the holidays during Food City’s 16th annual Tamale Festival in downtown Phoenix!

Free and open to the public!

Attendees will be able to taste and buy a wide selection of savory and sweet homemade tamales, as well as enjoy jewelry, arts and crafts and much more. The two-day event will also offer live mariachis, ballet folklorico dancers and other musical entertainment.

Tamalemakers from local faith-based groups prepare their tamales in church commissaries and then sell them at the festival to fundraise for their organization.

Food City also will be selling tamales, menudo, carne asada burritos, durros, pan dulce, aguas frescas and champurrado (Mexican hot chocolate).
