Encompassing 11 city blocks of downtown Redwood City, much of the event takes place on Broadway between Middlefield and Hamilton and on the beautiful Theatre Way. Theatre Way and parts of Broadway will be pedestrian-only.

Amateur and professional salsa chefs will compete for fun, prizes and salsa glory, at the mouth watering and exciting Salsa Tasting & Competition, where the public takes part in the judging. Public tasting is from 12-5 pm, but come early to be sure to sample the most popular. There will also be a public Tequila Tasting, so come thirsty.

Music will be spread throughout downtown with three stages: Courthouse Square Salsa Stage, Latin Rock Stage and Reggae Stage. Kids can enjoy free hands-on art projects, a Children’s Play Area complete with bounce houses, and much more.
