The Annual Tamales! Holiday Festival began in December 2010 as an event centered around San Antonio Tradition with tamales, culture, music and fun for the whole family. With over twenty different tamales vendors, a kid's craft area, and live music and entertainment Tamales! is a celebration of family, food and fun that San Antonians have come to associate with the holidays.
When the quintessential dish of Spain and culinary all-stars from across the country and Mexico come together, you know it's time for the Corona Paella Challenge hosted by Chef Johnny Hernandez. Guests join fellow foodies for an afternoon of food, live entertainment, wines from Spain, and sangria on the grounds of Pearl. Guests watch celebrity chefs and high school teams go head-to-head to create the most impressive paella right before your eyes.
