November 5, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Grape Day Park


The Second Annual Escondido Tamale Festival is a celebration of Tamales and all the great Latin foods that have become iconic staples of California's culture.  Last year’s inaugural event far exceeded expectations. This year’s event is expected to draw nearly 10,000 visitors over the course of the day!

Enjoy free admission, great food, craft beer and wine to purchase, entertainment, competitions (including the chihuahua costume contest and fashion show) and celebrity chefs. It is also a look back at the history of the Spanish and Mexican settlers who built the framework for this great state.

 Don’t miss!  This event is presented by the Escondido Downtown Business Association
