Arizona’s best tamale-makers will help celebrate the holidays during Food City’s 15th annual Tamale Festival in downtown Phoenix on Saturday, December 10, and Sunday, December 11.

This food festival is FREE and open to the general public, and takes place as many families make homemade tamales for the holiday season.

Thousands of attendees will be able to taste and buy a wide selection of savory and sweet homemade tamales, as well as enjoy jewelry, arts and crafts and much more. The two-day event will also offer live mariachis, ballet folklorico dancers, and other musical entertainment.

Tamale-makers from local faith-based groups prepare their tamales in church commissaries and then sell them at the Festival to fundraise for their organization. Last year, they sold more than 700 dozen tamales! Food City also will be selling tamales, menudo, carne asada burritos, durros, aguas frescas and champurrado (Mexican hot chocolate).

2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 11
