New Mexico Tamale Fiesta!

Get in the holiday mood with traditional Christmas treats and Borderland favorites: traditional red-chile pork tamales, green-chile-chicken, Puerto Rican style, vegetarian tamales, and more. Bring your appetite, because there will also be biscochos, posole, fresh tortillas, menudo, burritos, empanadas, green chile stew, pan dulce, champurrado, capirotada, and other holiday delicacies!

Silver City hosts the Fifth Annual New Mexico Tamal Fiesta y Más (formerly known as the New Mexico Tamale Festival), in the heart of Historic Downtown. Stroll along our decorated streets, visit traditional crafts vendors and our eclectic shops and galleries, and enjoy some of the best holiday food in the Americas: Eat tamales right on the spot at the festival, or order a dozen to take home!

We have a new location for 2015 -- still in historic downtown Silver City, but vendors will now set up along the north end of Bullard Street.

There will be traditional and modern performers throughout the day, so you can enjoy the holiday tastes, sounds, and sights right in the heart of our friendly small town. This festival celebrates our community's rich and diverse heritage: People have been living here and enjoying tamales for hundreds of years, so you can be sure the best traditional and modern recipes will be on display!

Celebrate the Hispanic heritage of Southwestern New Mexico and join us for a day of family fun for all!
