Festival De Mexico To Host Africa’s Biggest Tequila Toast

Join The Celebration On 26 May For ‘Festival De Mexico – Montecasino’

Festival De Mexico was born out of love for Mexican food, live music and of course, tequila. Three festivals and 6000 attendees later, the fourth festival has found a new home for the biggest Festival De Mexico celebration yet on Saturday, 26 May.

Montecasino’s Outdoor Event Arena will be blanketed in colourful décor to transform into the ultimate fiesta setting for Festival De Mexico. Get ready for the biggest celebration of Mexican Food from 20 different food vendors, vast variety of tequilas, Mexican cocktails, piñata showdowns, a chilli eating competition, bull riding and entertainment in bucket loads. The live entertainment also boasts an impressive local line-up with Gangs Of Ballet, Desmond & The Tutus, December Streets, Jerry & The Bandits and 4am confirmed to perform.

Event organiser, Danny Figueiredo (Director of Connect Entertainment) comments, “Festival De Mexico is a day filled with great food, amazing music and entertainment the entire day. Expect to leave satisfied and a little drunk, so definitely Uber.”

Montecasino is the perfect new setting for the increased demand of a bigger crowd looking to join the tequila celebrations and the Outdoor Event Arena allows for a 6000-strong crowd to comfortably enjoy the day.

Mike Page, GM of Montecasino, says, “All things Mexican have always been highly popular at Montecasino, and this festival promises to deliver the best experiences. The sights, the great sounds from top musicians, the fun activities, the delicious flavours and hot chilli tastes, and importantly, not to mention the vast variety of top tequilas, at an excellent venue, will together all ensure a festive and fun event for the lucky visitors who manage to get the limited tickets. We’re looking forward to it all.”

According to Statista, South Africa ranks 7th by country as one of the leading export destinations of Mexican tequila in 2017, importing over 1.5 million litres of tequila and the only African country listed in the Top 10. It’s only fitting that Festival De Mexico play host to Africa’s biggest tequila toast – a celebration uniquely suited to the event – and the first of its kind on the continent!
