Fed Square becomes an explosion of colour, music and taste
If you ever needed a reason to celebrate Mexican Independence Day, here’s your official invite. The annual Mission Food Mexican Festival is returning to Fed Square.
On the main stage, Mexican musicians, folk dance groups, mariachi bands and Salsa act LA 45 will perform, as well as some reliably energetic Zumba. There will be a market packed with handcrafts, jewellery and clothing, and an exhibition by Mexican sculptors, painters, costume designers and photographers. Intrepid travel will also be giving away two Real Food Adventure tours to Mexico.
Hungry? You can find tacos, tamales, tortas and tostados from Touche Hombre, Black Toro, La Tortilleria, Taco Bill, Mexico City, Guzman y Gomez, Chingon Taqueria y Cantina, South American BBQ, Salsa’s, Paco’s Tacos, Mamasita, Santa Ana, Mad Mex and Mesa Verde. Wash all that down at the Mexican Catina/Bar, where you’ll find Tromba tequila, Corona, Pacifico, Negra Modelo beers and Mexican wines from Baja California.
It’s a family-friendly event, so drop in at the kids’ corner, where there will be music, singing, making windmills, painting and crafting piñatas.
“This is like us inviting you into our home,” says project manager Maggie Alonso. “Share the things we love about our country and that we enjoy with our families every day.”
