South Peoria St & West 16th St

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.
