The Escondido Tamale Festival is a celebration of Tamales and all the great Latin foods that have become iconic staples of California's culture. It's a look back at the history of the Spanish and Mexican settlers who have influenced and contributed so much to our multicultural community, and a show of appreciation for the traditions which have so positively affected Escondido.  Mark your calendars and come to Escondido in North San Diego County on 11/5/16 from 11am-5pm for some traditional fun and the best tamales in Southern California!
