Arizona Western College Foundation, the AWC Alumni Association, and The Mexican Consulate in Yuma present the Taste of Yuma Foodie Fest. The Taste of Yuma is a collaborative event celebrating the global diversity of foods found in Yuma County. Showcasing the best regional culinary treats, there will be an exclusive VIP Taste of Meixo event from 3:00-5:00pm.
Food will be provided by local and regional chefs or commercial vendors and set up in sections by type of food or region. Musicians and dance groups reflecting the various cultures of Yuma and Mexico will provide entertainment throughout the evening. The beer/wine garden will have options of full beverages or sampling size.
A small admission fee will be charged to assist with the cost of the event and to raise money for scholarships and programs at Arizona Western College. Upon entrance, guests will receive a program with vendor information and food options. An option is to also include a survival kit (tums, pepto pills, toothpicks).
All proceeds from this event will benefit scholarships and programs offered by the AWC Foundation and AWC Alumni Association.
