Taste of Mexico

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 Austin’s most eclectic and exciting restaurants, food trucks, and beverage purveyors providing fine tequilas and mezcales.

Proceeds from Taste of Mexico benefit Mexic-Arte Museum’s art education programs, including the nationally recognized Screen It! 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.
