Lake Springfield Boathouse Lawn

Taste of Tlaquepaque: A Night at the Cantina is a celebration of Springfield’s sister city relationship with Tlaquepaque, Mexico. The party embodies Sister Cities’ 2018 theme, “music brings us together,” by bringing musicians visiting from Tlaquepaque together with local Springfield bands for an evening of nonstop, collaborative music.

Taste of Tlaquepaque is also the premiere event featuring alcohol service on Springfield-Greene County Park Board property. The event takes place under a beautiful tent complete with outdoor heat lamps on the lawn of the Springfield Lake Boathouse. Rain or shine; please keep the weather in mind as you dress for a festive, outdoor celebration.

Attendees can look forward to authentic food by Tortillaria Perches, plenty of dancing, and lounging by the fire pits.
