Taste of Mexico 2024

May. 22

May. 22 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm

Since 1998, Mexic-Arte Museum’s Taste of Mexico has become one of the leading Mexican-inspired culinary events of the year in Austin, 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 follow the theme of Antojitos. Guests will 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-nine 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.

Theme: Antojitos / “Little Cravings”

Antojitos are “little cravings,” or delicious appetizers, that reflect the diverse regional influences and ingredients that contribute to their creation. From street vendors to family gatherings to traditional mercados, antojitos are enjoyed across Mexico, fostering a sense of community and connection through shared meals. Tamales, tacos, quesadillas, sopes, flautas, gorditas, tortas, elotes y más are just a few examples of these delectable treats that showcase Mexico’s culinary heritage. In Antojitos we celebrate the spirit of Mexican hospitality and we enjoy the vibrant flavors that define this remarkable cuisine from various chefs/restaurants.
