Sabores San Miguel
Sabores San Miguel is a food festival that gathers the culinary community of San Miguel de Allende, promoting the gastronomic local scene, including restaurants and producers of bread, cheese, wine, beer, mescal, and organic produce.
The festival includes demonstrations, workshops, tastings, music, and kid’s activities. There will be live music, including Atomic to close the festival, and DJs like Symmetry, BeGolden, MCMeow, Audiochef, and Sekfrommars will also play during the weekend.
The festival officially kicks off on Friday, June 17, with the inauguration of the event at the park from 6 to 10pm. On Saturday June 18, from 12 to 8pm, the restaurants style, will offer samples of “Gourmet Food” to showcase their restaurant.
