The Zwolle Tamale Fiesta is a celebration of the Zwolle hot tamale, the tastiest hot tamale in the country thanks to the combination of Zwolle's Spanish and Native American heritage.

The three-day event is held in Zwolle each year the second weekend in October.

Among events planned during the Fiesta are a parade, carnival, live bands, street dance, tamale eating contest, arm wrestling competition, lots of great food, treasure hunt, arts & crafts, the Fiesta Mud Bog & over 20,000 dozen tamales for sale.

The Fiesta is held at the Zwolle Tamale Fiesta Grounds in Zwolle, Louisiana.
