As The Taste of Mexico Association grew, so did our celebration. We held our SOLD OUT 4th Annual Food & Culture Festival in the beautiful courtyard of downtown’s LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, LA’s dedicated museum to Mexican American history and culture. Taste of Mexico partnered with 31 corporate sponsors and welcomed over 5,500 attendees to a SOLD-OUT event to the city’s premier celebration of Mexican cuisine and culture. The event was officially inaugurated by the the Consul General of Mexico in Los Angeles, Carlos Sada. Patrons enjoyed unlimted tastings from 30 of LA’s top Mexican restaurants, ultra-premium tequila and mezcal, Montejo beer, Baja California wines, and premium cocktails, while enjoying live musical performances by Apoco No! (of Chicano Batman & Viento Callejero).
This 2015 is no different. We have extended the layout of our 5th annual celebration into the new adjacent Metro Explanade to expand our evening celebration and the debut of our Taste of Mexico Mercado, a one day market showcasing Los Angeles’ finest local, artisanal edibles, home goods and apparel. The Taste of Mexico Mercado will take place as part of the Taste of Mexico festival and will be located on the new Metro Explanade adjacent to the venue.
