The Washington’s Birthday Celebration festivities get smoking with the two-day Jalapeño Festival Sponsored by La Costeña that takes partying and competitive eating to scalding heights! American and Mexican influences join together in this unique tribute to the father of our country and the tiny green giant which, although small, is known to pack quite a punch -- in this rowdy celebration that will leave you burning for more. Cooking contests, a blind Jalapeño toss, delectable food booths and games-galore offer plenty to do, eat, and drink at this multicultural festival-within-a-festival; but remember to leave some energy for the tear-jerking, edge-of-your-seat excitement of the event’s signature attraction, the La Costeña Jalapeño Eating Contest. There are also several bands playing live music.
