2023 ¿Qué Pasa? FOOD VENDORS

Take your taste buds on a vacation through Latin America. Try something new and visit one of our wonderful local food vendors at this year’s ¿Qué Pasa? Festival! There are two food vendor areas this year, one is located in the mulch area of Brown’s Island and the other is located on Tredegar St. in between 5th street and 7th street.



Mexico’s cuisine is much more complex and creative that many people realized. Homemakers create stunashing flavors with very simple ingredients, by using a variety of techniques. Here at Abuelita’s recreate those flavor by using fresh ingredients and taking the time to cook them to perfection. Here are some of our most prominent ones.
