Get your taste buds ready for one of the most deliciously unique fundraising events you will ever attended. The 10th Annual Mole Throwdown, hosted by Centro Cultural Aztlan, is a culinary experience blended with art to promote Chicano/Latino Art and Culture in an innovative way that benefits Centro Cultural Aztlan’s year-long programming.
Mole is traditionally prepared for special events, bringing together friends and families. Mole is a delightfully rich tasting dark sauce infused with the flavors of chili peppers, chocolate, and about 25 or more spicy ingredients, and then lovingly poured over turkey or chicken.
Indulgent mole dishes will be prepared and generously donated by local restaurants and local chefs for your taste buds to enjoy. Cerveza (beer) will be iced down and served to complement the meal. A tequila tasting bar will be provided by Salud Tequila Bar, and Tito’s Handmade vodka will be serving a cocktail to refresh your palate. Patrons will be asked to vote for their favorite recipe, and a new winner will be announced!
In addition to the sampling of mole, there will be a Silent Art Auction featuring the works of artists who have supported Centro Cultural Aztlan for over three decades. These artists’ contribution is their way to show their gratitude to an organization, which focuses on promoting Chicano/Latino Art and Culture.
The 10thAnnual Mole Throwdown promises to be an exciting fundraising event sure to satisfy its patrons with good food and drink while promoting and contributing to an organization dedicated to supporting Chicano, Latino, and Indigenous art.

On September 6th, the Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor was approved by the Texas Commission on the Arts for designation as an official Texas Cultural District. This designation will allow artists, arts organizations, and businesses along Fredericksburg Road and N Flores to access new resources for community development—things like better signage, public art projects, façade restorations, and a district-wide marketing campaign.
The Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor received great feedback from the reviewers at the Texas Commission on the Arts, who commended its “quality arts attractions and amenities,” “historic assets,” and thriving businesses. They also appreciated the name “Old Spanish Trail” for its connection to the history of our community and its potential for a national marketing campaign to promote the district.
Dr. Gary Gibbs, Executive Director with the Texas Commission on the Arts will officiate the Designation Ceremony and Press Conference on Friday, October 26, 2018, at 10am. We would love for you to attend as an important member of the district.
I can’t tell you how pleased I am to see the good things happening in our community. Let’s keep the momentum moving forward. Thank you again for your hard work and support!
