Tamale Festivals 2019

La Habra Tamale Fest is 12/1

And Placentia 12/11

Last year was our first at La Habra and we loved it since there was more variety and shorter lines but hoping to hit both again. Loved trying the various chocolate drinks as well.


Can you buy them as well at the La Habra one?

I dont remember seeing ones packed up or specifically made to reheat at home in La Habra but we did take some to go from the last vendor we visited.

I went to the La Habra one 3 years ago. It was hosted/sponsored by Northgate markets. In the afternoon, parking was hard to come by and there were lines for everything. I don’t remember if you could purchase tamales en mass and a lot of vendors were running low on their stock. Haven’t been back since.
