The crisp fall air ushers in a tradition, accompanied by the familiar smell of tamales, that is forty-five years strong. A tradition that celebrates the vibrant culture of the Town of Zwolle and surrounding communities. A tradition steeped in rich Native American and Spanish heritage.

Every second full weekend in October the people of the area, as well as people from across multiple States, anticipate the return of the Zwolle Tamale Fiesta each year.

Just as the Fiesta has become a tradition for the area, Mia Curtis’s Spanish Classes at Zwolle High School and Ebarb School have developed their own traditions to help celebrate and set the scene for the annual Zwolle Tamale Fiesta.
