About Taste of Mexico 2022

Since 1998, Mexic-Arte Museum’s Taste of Mexico has become one of the leading Mexican-inspired culinary events of the year, with over 1,200 people in attendance in 2019. This culturally conscious event invites guests to generously sample creative cuisines from over 50 of Austin’s most eclectic and exciting restaurants, food trucks, and beverage purveyors providing fine tequilas and mezcales. This year’s Taste of Mexico will explore the influence of chiles; the vast variety of tastes, colors, and shapes that make up the dishes of Mexico. Guests will also get to enjoy food demos, music, and more!

Taste of Mexico serves to support Mexic-Arte Museum’s art education programs. Over the past thirty-six years, the Museum has empowered Austin youth through its exemplary art education programs, family days, internships, tours, and the Screen It! The program, which introduces youth to basic screen printing techniques and careers in the art field. Screen It! received the 2016 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, a project of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities presented by Honorary Chairman, First Lady Michelle Obama.
