About Taco's and Tamales Festivale

Pilsen is only a few minutes away from the center of Chicago by bus or train. This working-class neighborhood is thick with riches in art and historic architecture, and occupied by a community that’s fiercely proud of where they live. The Tacos y Tamales Festival aims to give back to the community in which it is hosted; as a portion of the proceeds will benefit local community groups as well as preservation projects inhabiting Pilsen’s everyday lifestyle.

16th Street Murals

 The Tacos y Tamales Festival will take place in the shadows of the 16th street murals. Local, as well as National and International artists have their works displayed on these walls. The giant paintings make for a very beautiful and unique backdrop for the event. They are truly a sight to behold. The Tacos y Tamales Festival will be raising money for the preservation of these cultural landmarks.
