Join us at La Gran Tamalada for a cultural culinary tradition! This year La Familia Cortez has partnered with the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center to move the event from its original home at the Guadalupe Theater to Historic Market Square for an expanded cultural experience. Learn how to make tamales and take a few of your own home with hands-on demonstrations or purchase your dozens of tamales for the holiday season at one of many tamal vendors. For the kids there will be children's activities in Centro de Artes such as storybook reading, corn husk doll decorating and photo opps with Pancho Claus provided by the San Antonio Public Library. With live music and so much more, there's something for the whole family to learn about the festive tradition of tamales! This family-friendly event is free and open to the public.

La Gran Tamalada will take place on December 10, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
