Due to Coronavirus, please stay tuned for updates.
This is an unprecedented time in our history. The COVID-19 pandemic is having an impact on the health of our loved ones, the businesses we rely upon, the health of the global economy, and the way we live our daily lives. As we all continue to navigate through these unique and evolving challenges, we want you to know that MASA and the Tamale Fest team are here and working hard to help the Rockford area. Keeping our customers, volunteers, and employees safe has never been a higher priority, so we're making some changes to our event line up. Please stay tuned for updates and news.
