The largest Mexican Food Festival in Austin, TX.
Austin, TX – Taste of Mexico returns on May 3rd to celebrate the artistry and culinary arts of Austin and Mexico. This culturally conscious and historical celebration of Cinco de Mayo invites guests to generously sample creative cuisines from over 50 of Austin’s most eclectic and exciting restaurants, food trucks, and beverage purveyors. Alongside fine tequilas and mezcales, Taste of Mexico offers regional specialties and contemporary fusions that trace the lineages of a cuisine that boasts continental flavor and international flare. This year’s Taste of Mexico will highlight French influence in Mexican foodscapes. From mother sauces and moles, to pastries and pan dulce, guests are invited to celebrate the cross-pollination of French and Mexican cuisine, as well as indulge in our desserts lounge featuring rich chocolates, sweet treats and after-dinner beverages.
Proceeds from Taste of Mexico benefit Mexic-Arte Museum’s art education programs, including the nationally recognized Screen It! Program, which introduces youth to basic screen printing techniques and careers in the art field. Screen It! received the 2016 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, a project of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities presented by Honorary Chairman, First Lady Michelle Obama.
