The Oxnard Tamale Festival is hosting a Best Tamales Contest! This contest is open to the public, so don’t hesitate! Sign up today!
This year’s contest will be split into two divisions: a Festival Vendor division (open only to registered food vendors at the event) and an open Public division. Furthermore, each division will have two categories in which to choose from: a savory category and a sweet category. Participants are welcome to submit to both categories in their division, but must submit a form for each.
