15th Annual Tucson Tamal & Heritage Festival at Casino Del Sol

All you can eat to kick off the holiday spirit.

The AVA Amphitheater at Casino Del Sol is hosting the annual Tucson Tamal & Heritage Festival from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 7.

This festival is perfectly placed on the calendar as the holiday season coincides with the cravings for tamales. Perhaps the biggest gift of all is the fact that the event is totally free.

What a gift, right?

Everyone’s invited to celebrate the rich tastes, scents, and the vast variety of tamales from the Southwest and Mexico. For weeks, tamale aficionados have been crafting the perfect tamale to enter in the contest, which gives everyone an opportunity to raise funds.

Overall, there’s going to be a Tamale Contest, live local entertainment, food vendors, artisan vendors, a farmers market, and plenty of other family fun.

Casino Del Sol’s AVA Amphitheater is located 5655 W. Valencia Rd. For more information, call (520) 838-6400 or visit casinodelsol.com.
