Taste of Mexico 2015! A Food Festival Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

Supporting Mexic-Arte Museum’s Education Programs, Taste of Mexico 2015 will be held in celebration of Cinco de Mayo at Brazos Hall on Tuesday, May 5th, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. For those searching to quench an appetite for authenticity, cross the borders of culinary competition, or simply rediscover the Mex in the Tex, this event is not to be missed.

The event will feature local distinguished chefs, providing an exclusive evening of samples and tastings from an array of savory and sweet Mexican-inspired cuisines and beverages. The evening also highlights contemporary Latin music by DJ Sonora of Peligrosa and a selection of Mariachi talent. Taste of Mexico ticket sales and sponsorships not only celebrate the art and culture of Mexican and Latin American people, but also support the Mexic-Arte Museum in its mission to offer enriching educational programs. These programs include after-school outreach art classes, guided school tours, Family Day activities, artist workshops, and gallery guides which help students gain knowledge, pride, and skills enabling them to succeed in school and in the future.

This year, Taste of Mexico will feature the Bazaar del Arte including Mexican folk arts & crafts, unique gifts, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, selections from the museum store, and the Pop up Print Shop hosted by our very own Screen It! Program Advanced Students and The Education Department.
