International Tamale Festival returns to Indio this weekend

It’s the first weekend in December, and that means it’s time for the Indio International Tamale Festival!

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (December 6) and Sunday (December 7). It takes place in downtown Indio, between Highway 111 and Indio Boulevard, along Miles Avenue, Towne Street, Smurr Street and Requa Avenue.

It kicks off at 10 a.m. today with a parade that begins at Miles Avenue Park.

Free parking (with a free shuttle to the festival) is available at the Larson Justice Center on the corner of Highway 111 and Oasis Street. In the past, we’ve just found street parking on Oasis Street near Miles Avenue, a short block from the festival.

Admission and parking are free.
