Twirl around to live mariachi music as you dazzle your palettes with an array of authentic Mexican creations brought to you by some of Sydney’s favourite Mexican-inspired restaurants. In addition to an exceptional lineup of food stalls, margarita bars, and live music, this two-day cultural celebration will light up with interactive street art, taco-eating competitions, lucha libre wrestling matches and a tequila masterclass. With some fun to be had from every member of the family, this lively fiesta should not be missed!
