Huevos Rancheros Cook-Off and Gala

When: Sat., March 4, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. 2017

Rosedale Park will come alive with the savory wafting scent of 15 restaurants/chefs trying to outdo themselves for this year’s Huevos Rancheros Cook-Off and Gala put on by San Anto Cultural Arts. Hosted by two members of the community with a lasting commitment to the arts, King and Queen Huevo, the event is one of San Anto’s major fundraisers of the year. This year’s King, David Zamora Casas, is a painter, activist, installation artist and curator known as Nuclear Meltdown, whose work can be found inside the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the San Antonio Museum of Art. Queen Rita Vidaurri was born in the city’s Westside and went on to earn international acclaim as a singer and actress in the 1940s and ’50s. Casas and Vidaurri will be part of the judging panel that picks the best traditional and contemporary takes on this breakfast staple. This year adds a new Artisans’ Market to the kid-friendly mix that includes live music, artsy activities and a silent auction.
