Join us right on Rockfords Miracle Mile for Rockfords biggest fiesta!

This is a competition to see who has the best Tamales in the area!

We bring you food trucks and food vendors from all over the midwest so you can taste flavors from all over Latin America.

We also bring you Lowriders from all over the country for our lowrider show and hopping contest. Then we throw in some Lucha Libre, a  jalapeño eating contest, a model pin-up contest, and some cold drinks and that's us just getting started. 

You can also expect to see the Ballet Folklorico, Aztec dancers, a few artists, plenty of vendors, tons of food, and drinks. All to raise funds for two nonprofits.
