This year, Mexico Gourmet celebrates the rich traditions of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a deeply rooted Mexican holiday with a blend of pre-Hispanic and Catholic origins. As October comes to a close, Mexican families come together to revel in fiestas, create intricate ofrendas (altars), and commemorate their loved ones with heartfelt graveside vigils. It’s a belief that for one day of the year, departed souls return to reconnect with the living.

The event organizers promise an unforgettable cultural celebration in San Diego that seamlessly intertwines tradition with contemporary gourmet experiences. Mexico Gourmet invites everyone to partake in the celebration of life, death, exquisite cuisine, and the vibrant spirit of Mexico!

Prepare your taste buds for a culinary journey like no other with an impressive lineup of sixteen Mexican chefs hailing from Baja California and San Diego. Renowned chefs such as David Alarcon, Rosie O’Connor, Rael Coronado, Martin San Roman, Christian Herrera, Oliver Seki, Joel Quintana, Danny Betancourt, and more will be present, tantalizing attendees’ palates with their creations.

But the feast doesn’t end there; San Diego’s finest Mexican food trucks will be on-site, serving up a delectable array of dishes, from mouthwatering tacos to sumptuous mariscos (seafood). Keep an eye out for the beloved Mariscos German Beyer, courtesy of chef Jorge Fuentes, among others.

To complement your culinary adventure, indulge in Mexican spirits and craft beers from esteemed producers like Casa Mexico, Tequila La Maria, Mezcal Dos Pulque, Javis Mezcal, Tequila Cazadores, Tequila Los Panchitos, Estrella Jalisco, Mezcal Gulroo, and more. The best part? All your food and beverage desires are included in the price of admission.

In perfect alignment with the Day of the Dead theme, Mexico Gourmet will showcase a breathtaking ofrenda, with talented artists offering iconic Catrina face painting for attendees.
