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.
