Fajita Festival

On Friday, the Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (AHCC) will host its 2022 Cinco de Mayo Fajita Festival at Starlight Ranch, located at 1415 Sunrise Dr., from 6 to 10 pm

The event will include 22 competing cooking teams serving all-you-can-eat fajitas; 16 vendor booths giving away free items including shaved ice; live performances from Los Tigrillos and local band Version 2.0; and more.

“Make sure you come out on an empty stomach. There is so much to eat; there is so much to do. Bring the entire family and have a good time,” said Jennifer Anguiano, executive director for the AHCC. “Its a really good time to experience the Hispanic culture and celebrate with us. Just come out, dance, eat, laugh and enjoy a good night with the Hispanic community. “
