Tacos y Tamales Festival

Green Curtain Events is proud to announce the annual Tacos y Tamales Festival – street affair based off a traditional Mexican market known as the Tianguis.
• July 15, 16 and 17
• 16th Street Gallery (Pilsen)
• Authentic Tacos, Tamales, Modelo Beer Portfolio, Micheladas, Music, Art, Shopping
7|15: 5 to 10pm
7|16: Noon to 10pm
7|17: Noon to 9pm

Authentic food, art, and entertainment return to 16th street in Pilsen.

The Tacos y Tamales Festival aims to give back to the community in which it is hosted; as a portion of the proceeds will benefit the local Frida Kahlo Community Group and Opportunities for All.

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

Food vendors will include, but not limited to the very best of Chicago’s tacos y tamales from authentic locations.
