Tamale Festival

10th Annual Tamale Festival

Come join us May 13th from 10am-4pm in Old Orchard Park for a day of family fun as we celebrate the Hispanic culture in an East Texas Tex-Mex way.

There is a lot for the whole family to enjoy from bouncy houses, a kids area, a Mariachi Band, food vendors with authentic Mexican food along with the Texas traditional festival foods, craft vendors and a lot more.

This year we are excited to bring you Barks 4 Life a Dog Agility Show. Come out and watch as these dogs showcase their talent, you will be amazed at what they can do. 

Do you think you have the talent to kick a soccer ball and hit a bulls eye? If so make your way over to our Soccer Dart section and give it a try. This huge inflatable dartboard is your target, kick the soccer balls and see if you can get it to stick in the bullseye, we dare you. 

Watch our local school age Folkloric Dancers showcase their skills with their dance moves that reflect the traditional life of the Hispanic culture.

The Tamale Festival Youth Boxing Tournament will be back again for the 3rd year. Last year this was a crowd pleaser that pulled everyone in to watch throughout the day. Come watch this talented group of young men as they compete to be the best.

There will be a magician walking around the grounds doing magic tricks and making things with balloons. Come out and watch him entertain the crowd. The High School AG Department will be hosting our Cowboy Boot camp for the kids to learn what it would be like to be a Cowboy for the day. KSWP/KAVX will have a obstacle course for the kids to enjoy. The mechanical bull and the bungee jump will be back again. And of course we will have the Tamale Cooking Contest open to all our vendors who have a booth space and our Tamale Eating Contest to see who can eat the most Tamales! 

We have a full day planned, come out and visit with us and see what all is going on in Diboll on May 13th. Come Enjoy Diboll with us!
