There’s a Huge Mexican Food and Heritage Festival in Toronto This Month


Get ready for a lively Mexican heritage and food festival that will take over Toronto this month.

To celebrate the country’s 212th anniversary of independence, some of Toronto’s most popular Mexican restaurants will set up shop in a popular downtown plaza with the celebration of Mexican Independence Day 2022.

Taking place on September 17, a day after Mexico’s Independence Day (no, Cinco de Mayo is not Independence Day), visitors can celebrate with food, culture and music nationals.

Rebozos, El Trompo Movil, El Sazon Mexicano, Wrestlers, La Tortilleria, Tita’s Mexican Food, Tacos 101, Fruta Libre, Mad Mexican, Alebrijes and Casa Cancun will serve taco, tamale and torta dishes.

It’s a free, one-day event with tons of musical performances, including several Mariachi bands and solo artists.

Toronto has a huge Mexican community, with over 18,000 Mexican residents residing in the city according to 2016 census data.

This year’s festivities mark the 28th annual celebration in our city, with a return to the in-person events of the past two years.

So if you’re ready to gorge on delicious plates and celebrate Mexican culture, be sure to drop by Nathan Phillips Square from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on September 17, 2022.
