September 14 is going to be the best hung over Sunday of your life. Mainly because all the tacos in Melbourne are going to be in one place at the Mission Mexican Festival at Federation Square. Finally an excuse to wear a flower crown and paint your face like a Sugar Skull without having to wait for someone to throw a Mexican party!

There are other reasons why this is going to be a kick ass event beyond having an ‘on-trend’ theme. In its third year, the festival celebrates Mexico’s Independence Day by bringing the best of Mexican cuisine and culture to life in Melbourne. I imagine it’s going to be like living in an Old El Paso ad, except with more cultural sensitivity. Also it’s free.

First things first I’m sure you don’t want to hear about Mexican food unless you’re going to be able to eventually eat it. To put your mind at ease, all the boss as Mexican restaurants Touche Hombre, Black Toro, La Tortilleria, Taco Bill, Mexico City, Guzman y Gomez, Chingon Taqueria y Cantina, South American BBQ, Salsa’s, Paco’s Tacos, Mamasita, Santa Ana, Mad Mex and Mesa Verde, will be front and centre delivering the goods and serving up authentic Mexican dishes.

Fill your belly, mind and soul. For your authentic Mexican experience, bands, performers, salsa, Zumba, and folk dance groups will be performing throughout the day. See the culture in the MEXICANART art exhibition featuring Mexico’s artistic the representations of the real Mexico on display. The Centre for Adult Education (CAE) are running language workshops throughout the day so you can learn the official lingo and there is even a market so you can take home your own piece of Mexico.

And if you still don’t feel Mexican after all this, a few shots of the local liquor should have you convinced. The Cantina will be pouring the traditional bevs, tequila, Tromba, Corona, Pacifico and Negra Modelo beers, as well as Mexican wines from Baja California (for those of you who want to keep it classy).

Viva Mexico! Best. Sunday. Ever.
