What makes this festival even more unique is it’s centering on street markets, a remnant of Mexico’s pre-Hispanic era which remains a vital part of culture and local communities.

You’re invited to learn and experience traditional Mexican arts and culture through the waterfront public market. The market will highlight local artists and vendors from the region. There will also be live performers, plenty of opportunities to shop, and of course nosh on street-style Mexican food. And, you can also sip and enjoy tequila-inspired concoctions.
