Agave Heritage Festival at Hotel Congress

April 28, 2022 - May 1, 2022

The 2022 Agave Heritage Festival is a four-day action packed adventure into the world of the agave. Featuring over 20 distinctive events from April 28th through May 1st, it is a festival like no other. The diverse offerings at the Agave Heritage Festival attract a broad variety of interest from the public sector, as well as from the industry, conservation experts, and cultural authorities. The opportunities for learning, tasting, and exploration of the centuries old culture of the agave are many.

When the Festival first appeared on the scene as the Agave Fest in 2008, little did the founding committee at Hotel Congress know how prescient their shining a spotlight on the Agave plant would be. In the years since, the agave universe has taken on a worldwide fascination, pushing the growth of the industry directions none could have imagined. The number of artisanal and ancestral agave spirits offered at the first event has almost tripled since then and the Agave Fest has grown from a one-day Cinco de Mayo tequila lover’s fiesta to a multi-day Heritage Festival focused on sustainability, and the historical, cultural, and commercial significance of the agave plant across borders.

Something for every age, interest and taste can be found at the festival. Many events offer free admission, tickets for others can be purchased.
