The National Museum for the Popular Cultures in Coyoacán, southern Mexico City, opened yesterday its traditional Tamal Festival, a culinary event dedicated to this dish of pre-Hispanic origin!

This year, the 26th edition will feature more than 50 producers, food specialists, and chefs who will participate in conferences, round tables, and demonstrations.
 

Relish yourself with traditional tamales from Chiapas, Michoacán, Oaxaca, Tabasco, Veracruz, Yucatán and more Mexican states!

Tamales from other Latin American countries, such as Colombia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, and Venezuela, will be available as well!

The event, organized by the General Directorate of Popular Cultures of the Ministry of Culture, is framed by Candlemas Day celebrated on February 2 marking the culmination of the Christmas festivities and the beginning of the agricultural cycle.

Tamal Festival will be held from January 30 to February 4 at the National Museum for the Popular Cultures.
