The exciting 3rd Annual Denver City (Yoakum County) Tamale Festival kicks off Thursday night December 5th and rolls through the weekend at Stuffy Moorehead Park in Denver City.

This is a tremendous event for the whole family. Tamale lovers and everyone who enjoys a great celebration complete with a variety of vendors and activities needs to be there. Enjoy plenty to keep all ages entertained including a parade, petting zoo, face painting, food, live music and more!

Visit Santa and enjoy a Parade of Lights Friday night. Saturday it's a volleyball tournament, and Best Tamale competition and Tamale Eating contest

See tremendous live music and entertainment from Jere Lowe, Bobby G and the Galaxy Band and Los Culpables.

I am really looking forward to this and will be out to emcee the Tamale Eating Contest Saturday at 4:15! We will have plenty of prizes up for grabs. So make plans to join us for this fun-filled event.
