Taste of Mexico, a top tasting event that celebrates Mexican and Mexican-inspired cuisine, has rescheduled its popular May event to September due to the coronavirus pandemic.


The annual fundraiser for the Mexic-Arte Museum launched in 1998 and last year drew more than 1,200 attendees. Now, the Sept. 23 event at Brazos Hall will coincide with Hispanic Heritage Month. It’ll feature more than 35 Central Texas restaurants and food trucks that’ll explore the influence of chiles throughout Mexico.
