Tamal-filled Weekend

Corn husks will line the streets of San Antonio this weekend as masa-fanatics take on three new tamal-centric events. Brooks kicks things off on the Southside with Feliz Tamalidad, which includes live music by Los Texamaniacs, Bombasta, and James Keith and the Moondogs and tamales from area vendors (free, noon-6pm, Sat, Hangar 9, 8081 Inner Circle Drive). You’ll want to save room for Sunday’s dueling tamaladas: La Gran Tamalada will relocate from its usual home at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center to Market Square, where La Familia Cortez will host hands-on workshops on tamal-making, children’s activities and photos with Pancho Claus provided by the San Antonio Public Library (free, 11am-4pm, Historic Market Square, 514 W. Commerce St.). Over on the city’s Eastside, EgCollaborations will host Sunday Masa: A Holiday Tamales Extravaganza with a “Pan Dulce Pavilion,” Made in SA Holiday Market with local craft vendors such as BarbacoApparel, Grey Moon Vintage, and Garcia Art Glass, and a dozen (duh) tamal vendors including Celorio’s Tortillas, Johnny Joe’s, Toña’s Tamales, Tommy’s Barbacoa & Big Red, Carnitas Lonja and Chilito Express, among others (free, 11am-6pm, Alamo Beer Co., 202 Lamar St.). Bring your stretchy pants.
