Prepare for TAMALE-TOPIA! The 1st Annual Corpus Christi Hot Tamale Festival will be held in Downtown Corpus Christi from noon - 12 a.m. on Nov. 21, 2015.

The CC Hot Tamale Street Fest was created to celebrate our community and honor its culture and traditions. We strive to enrich our community by supporting small businesses, showcasing local talent and harnessing community involvement. Tamale making is a staple here in the Coastal Bend and the delicious signal that the holidays are near!

The purpose of our mission is to give back to our community. Aside from showcasing local food, a large focus of our event is recognizing the importance of the arts and arts education for youth here in the Coastal Bend. Thus, we've joined forces with Corpus Christi Concert Ballet in efforts to further enrich local arts programs.

Tamales, Tamales, Tamales...It's all about the Tamales! We will be showcasing South Texas' best tamales. Stock up for the holidays and witness our panel of judges vote for C.C.'s Best Tamale and Best Creative Tamale.

Relax and enjoy a variety of entertainment from music to guest speakers. We will be showcasing the best of local talents.

Who will brave the dreaded HOT TAMALE and be crowned champion? Contestants will compete to win grand prize in our first annual HOT TAMALE EATING CONTEST!

C.C. Hot Tamale Fest will be held in beautiful downtown Corpus Christi, TX on N. Chapparal between William St and Lawrence St. Click the MAP button for Google directions.
