Brought to you by Modelo | The Tacos y Tamales Festival brings authentic food, art, and entertainment annually to 16th street in Pilsen. 

Donate Early | Use Credit | Save !

The Tacos y Tamales Festival aims to give back to the community as a portion of proceeds will benefit the local Pilsen Arts & Community House as well as the Frida Kahlo Community Group.

The Festival is FREE to attend, however there is an $8 Suggested Donation (at the gates) benefiting these great causes. 

Patrons may show support and Donate Early (starting at $7); which is the most convenient way to use a Credit or Debit Card to enter the festival by donation.  Simply show your donation confirmation (whether printed or on your smart phone), and enter with ease! 


The backdrop for Tacos y Tamales will take place in the shadows of the impressive 16th street murals, where local, as well as National and International artists have their works displayed right on the very walls the festival calls home.

There will be two performance stages, featuring live music and DJs throughout the weekend with traditional acts, interactive dance performances, and higher energy Latin rock into the night.
