Mexican Festival will mix Food, Art, Music, and Culture to give Melbourne a True Taste of Mexico. It attracts a diverse cross section of Australians and this year is growing in popularity and importance.
Mexfest was founded in 2012 by a group of enthusiastic Mexicans living in Melbourne with the mission of bringing the best of Mexican culture, traditions, food and art to Melbourne. Mexican Festival takes place every mid September in Federation Square, to celebrate Mexican Independence Day.
Mexican Independence Day is one of the biggest holidays in Mexico. People celebrate with food, songs, fireworks, festivals, parades, music and more.
