In celebration of food grown locally in Central Minnesota and the rich cultural diversity of our farming community, SFA Central Chapter will unite salsa lovers from all over the state to enjoy live music, salsa tasting, local food vendors and artisan shopping, a salsa contest and fun for the whole family at the first annual Minnesota Salsa Fest from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sat., Sept. 16, at the Todd County Fairgrounds in Long Prairie.
This community event aims to spotlight all things salsa-related available right here in our region, showcasing Mexican food from Taqueria Chavez (Long Prairie), El Portal (Melrose), Griff’s Pizza (Long Prairie), Ted & Gen’s BBQ and Finnegan’s beer, live music with Diamante de Mexico (Diamond of Mexico), salsa-making demonstrations, a salsa contest, salsa ice cream for sample and sale developed by the University of Minnesota Ice Cream Lab and served by the Todd County dairy princesses, and local vendors selling salsa and other farmers’ market goods.
Tickets are $5/person at the gate; under 12 free.
