What exactly is Burger Beast’s El Main Evento? Well, the short version is that it’s a celebration of Mexican culture.
Burger Beast, who curated and produced the event, is a giant fan of Mexico. Every 3rd Saturday of September at Magic City Casino (450 NW 37th Avenue) in the heart of Miami, Florida, for four years, we celebrated all things, Mexican. El Main Evento was an all-ages event with FREE admission.
The first El Main Evento in 2012 featured only the Lucha Libre and Mexican food.
It would grow to include food trucks and restaurants selling Mexican specialty foods, live Lucha Libra, live Mariachis and Mexican folkloric dancers, plus a Burrito Contest thrown in for good measure.
Burger Beast is interested in retooling the event and bringing it back in a different format, so you shouldn’t be surprised if El Main Evento reappears soon.
