BE A SPONSOR AT THE
ESCONDIDO TAMALE FESTIVAL
Grape Day Park, Downtown Escondido
Saturday, November 5, 2016  
11am - 5pm

Presented by the Escondido Downtown Business Association

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 is also a look back at the history of the Spanish and Mexican settlers who built the framework for this great state. The intent is to shine a bright light on those who have influenced and contributed to our multicultural community, and to show appreciation for the traditions which have so positively affected Escondido.

The Escondido Tamale Festival will be held in Grape Day Park, the city's 100 yr old “Zocalo” (gathering place) for the community. 10-12,000 guests are anticipated.

The event will be advertised and marketed professionally via press releases and media promotions, bringing your company attention from a local & regional customer base. Print media will include 10,000 pre-event postcards with sponsor logos, plus posters, flyers (with sponsor logos), online advertising & social media, as well as print ads in regional event-focused publications, and via San Diego Beer Week.

  Attractions planned include: 
  • Tamale Contests 
  • Stage Performances with Mariachis, Latin Dance and Folklorico Music Performances
  • Early California history exhibits
  • Craft area; Artisan and Holiday Vendors 
  • Chihuahua Costume Contest and Fashion Show


Tamales will be featured in all varieties and will be available for purchase.  There will be a "La Suegra" Best Tamale Contest and California craft beers and wines will be available throughout the afternoon in the Beer/Wine Garden, an official stop on San Diego Beer Week's schedule of events.

Portions of the proceeds from the Escondido Tamale Festival will be used to promote Historic Downtown Escondido as a shopping, dining and entertainment district.

Please review the sponsor levels included and let us know what works best for you.  Muchas Gracias!  We look forward to working with you.
