Salsa Festival

Friday, Aug. 25 at North End Organic Nursery


If you agree the combination of tomatoes, peppers, onions and spices is one of the greatest culinary innovations of all time, the fifth annual Salsa Festival is calling your name.

North End Organic Nursery and the Tomato Independence Project join forces Friday, Aug. 25 to host a day of amateur and professional salsa competitions, samplers, food and drink trucks, bounce houses, live music and more. To enter your salsa recipe, pick up a form at NEON—and don't forget to bring your friends and family on Friday, because the winner is people's choice.

Meanwhile, there's more than one spicy soiree going on this week: On Saturday, Aug. 26, don your dancing shoes and twirl on over to the Basque Block for Latino Fest (starting at 4 p.m.), where you can get a taste of the other kind of salsa.
