¡Ay Caramba! Auckland’s Mexican Festival Is Back

If there’s one thing Aucklanders love, it’s a festival. And if it’s a festival involving delicious eats, it’s an instant hit.

Listen up, festival fanatics. One of Auckland’s best festivals is back for another year and it’s guaranteed to be jam-packed with tacos, salsa steps and vibrant costumes. Yep, you guessed it. MexFestival is back and taking over the ASB Showgrounds next month (!!)

Aligning with Día de Muertos (aka Day of the Dead), the festival will showcase all things Mexican. Think mariachi bands, Mexican wrestling, dress-up comps and, of course, more tacos than you can poke a stick at.

The day will also be filled with Mexican-esque workshops like tortilla-making classes and dance lessons. You’ll find us with a paint brush in one hand, margarita in the other as we attend MexFestival’s boozy Day of the Dead skull painting class.

Vámonos, let’s go. We’ll see you there, amigos.
