Yoakum County Tamale Festival

The first annual event will kick off on Friday with a dinner catered by St. Williams Catholic Church Guadalupanas. A lighted parade will then begin at Broadway and Avenue B finishing at Stubby Moorehead Park. On Saturday, craft and clothing vendors and food booths offer the usual festival fare as well as plenty of tamales in the park. Highlights include a tamale competition, a tamale-eating contest, and the crowning of a queen. Contestants can enter one of two categories: professional and non-professional, and enter either traditional or gourmet tamales into the contest. However, judges have the final say in who has the best tamales around.


Dec. 1-2


Stuffy Morehead Park DENVER CITY, Texas
