Taste of Mexico 2019 returns on May 1 to celebrate the artistry and culinary arts of Austin and Mexico. This culturally conscious and historical celebration of Cinco de Mayo invites guests to generously sample creative cuisines from over 50 of Austin’s most eclectic and exciting restaurants, food trucks, and beverage purveyors. This year’s Taste of Mexico will explore the influence of Puebla in the Mexican culinary arts and will feature some of the top chefs, tequilas, and mezcales in Central Texas.
Proceeds from Taste of Mexico benefit Mexic-Arte Museum’s art education programs, including the nationally recognized Screen It!

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.
