Fiesta de Tamales

Last year's 9th annual Fiesta de Tamales at Basalt High School was a resounding success. Over 600 guests enjoyed tamales & pupusas, homemade desserts, and lively entertainment provided by our Mariachi band and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico. Kids created handicrafts with The Art Base, jumped till dark in the bouncy house, and cracked piñatas made by Aspen Middle School art students. A true cross-cultural event, the Fiesta was a celebration of our diverse community here in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley.
