Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Fiesta Fest & Uptown Fiesta

Felipe’s Taqueria Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with Inaugural “Fiesta Fest” and “Uptown Fiesta”
Portion of Proceeds to Benefit ‘Son of a Saint’

New Orleans – It’s fiesta time! Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a weekend-long celebration at two of its New Orleans locations.

On Friday, September 15th, Fiesta Fest takes over the courtyard at Mid-City Market, located at 411 North Carrollton Avenue. The family-friendly event coincides with Mexico and Central America’s Independence Day and will include live music, food, dancing, and, of course, the best rocks and frozen fresh-squeezed margaritas around. The musical highlight of this celebration is the singer-songwriter José Fermín Ceballos with his Salsa Orchestra performing all original Salsa compositions and accompanied by his Latin band Merengue4-FOUR. The live performance begins at 7 p.m.

The celebration continues Saturday, September 16th with Uptown Fiesta at Felipe’s Uptown location at 6215 South Miro Street. Festivities include live music from Papo y Son Manao, salsa dancing, food and fun!

“Our team members want to celebrate this important holiday with the community, and what a better way to do it than with a two-day fiesta,” says Lon Nichols, HR Director. “We’re excited to start a new Felipe’s tradition honoring Mexican and Central American independence.”

A portion of the proceeds from the two-day Fiesta will be donated to Son of a Saint. The nonprofit mentorship program works to enhance the lives of fatherless boys in the Greater New Orleans region. Son of a Saint is currently looking to increase the number of Hispanic applicants for the program.

National Tequila Day is July 24

July 24 is National Tequila Day, and Felipe’s Taqueria has a very special Herradura tequila available to complement our range of authentic Mexican specialties.

One-of-a-Kind Herradura Double Reposado Tequila

In 2014, the Felipe’s team went to the Herradura distillery in Jalisco, Mexico and tasted barrel after barrel of their special double barrel Reposado tequila. After hour four of tasting tequila, we finally stumbled on the barrel that was the perfect flavor balance for Felipe’s.
