Share This

On Friday February 2 this year, the third annual Tamal Festival will take place in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, according to information provided by the organizer Héctor Escobedo and who is also the president of the Association of Chefs of the Riviera Maya.

The event will take place next to the municipal palace of Solidaridad, where Playa del Carmen is located.

Traditionally in Mexico, when people get together with family and friends to eat “Rosca de Reyes” on January 6, whoever gets the figurine that comes within the rosca, must buy tamales for everyone else during the celebration of the Día de la Candelaria (Candlemas) on February 2.

Last year, this festival achieved a sale of approximately 9 thousand tamales in less than an hour.

So if you happen to be in Playa del Carmen on that date, you have to go and get some of those delicious tamales!
