The Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Habla Tamale Festival for New Mexico because we speak tamale! The Habla Tamale Festival Tamale Cook-Off is a fun filled event held the second Saturday in August featuring everything Tamale! To our knowledge there are only a handfull of Festivals in the country devoted to the tamale and until our first event in 2015, none in New Mexico. The Festival's featured event is the tamale cook-off contest.
