TamalFest DC Open Call

  • Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library’s Auditorium 3310 Connecticut Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

TamalFest DC is back for a second year! This culinary festival—part fiesta, part cultural exchange celebrating a truly a pan-American dish, el tamal—will return in December 2016, featuring amateur and professional chefs from Washington’s Latino community. Last year nearly a dozen local cooking teams hailing from six tamal-making traditions served a sold-out crowd of DC tamale aficionados. Building on that success, we’re planning an even bigger and better festival this year.

Hola Cultura is now enrolling cooks, caterers and chefs to compete for top honors in TamalFest DC’s People’s Choice Awards. To learn more about TamalFest DC and how to participate as a cook, volunteer or sponsor, Hola Cultura will hold a public on Wed., Sept. 14th, 7:00 p.m. More information: 202-722-0335 or
