The Epic Outdoor Food Fest In Arizona You Simply Cannot Miss

One of my favorite parts of the holidays? The abundance of food which is almost always accompanied by loved ones and smiling faces (with the exception of a surly relative or two). If the Christmas season isn’t complete without a serving or five of some mouthwatering tamales, then you’re going to love this epic food festival coming up later this month!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Somerton Tamale Festival will be held December 16 on the main street in Somerton, located approximately 11 miles southwest of Yuma. The event is free to attend and most parking areas are also free. We recommend bringing cash as some vendors do not take credit or debit cards. You can find more details about the event on the website,
