My Nana's Best Tasting Salsa Challenge
Every year, more than 100 amateur and professional cooks prepare fresh salsas for My Nana's Best Tasting Salsa Challenge. Proceeds from the salsa competition and festival benefit the Arizona Hemophilia Association, which aims to enhance the quality of life for those affected by bleeding disorders and advocate for better medical care and insurance coverage. Now over 30 years old, the fest brings in more than 20,000 people annually. In addition to the salsa challenge, the Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix-Off asks local bartenders to face off for the title of Best Margarita and a $500 cash prize. Outside of competitions, margaritas and cold beers wash down unlimited chips and salsa, and the rhythms of live bands keep crowds chewing in unison. Parents can accompany their children at the fun zone, with multiple bounce houses, interactive games, and a rock-climbing wall.
