Join the search for the “best tamale in Raleigh” by coming out to the 10th annual Raleigh Tamale Festival. This event is free and open to the public. It is a celebration of Latin cultural heritage and an homage to the all mighty and all tasty symbol of Hispanic cuisine- the tamale.

For those of you who don’t know what a tamale is- typically a Mexican dish, they contain a seasoned meat that is wrapped in a corn-based dough, covered in cornhusks or plantain leaves and steamed until done. In a word- delicious.

The festival includes a tamale competition, informational booths, food vendors, games, live music and authentic entertainment for the whole family. This event drew over 2500 people in 2017 so don’t miss out on the Latin inspired food and fun!
