The Escondido Tamale Festival is a celebration of Tamales and all the great Latin foods that have become iconic staples of California's culture. It is also a look back at the history of the Spanish and Mexican settlers who built the framework for this great state.  The intent is to shine a bright light on those who have influenced and contributed to our multicultural community, and to show appreciation for the traditions which have so positively affected Escondido.
