Day of the Dead Festival

Worship at the altar of El Camino Cantina during its 2020 Day of the Dead fiesta and celebrate delicious foods of the Dias de los Muertos holiday.

Join the colourful celebration with sinful margarita flavours, loud music, colourful costumes and elaborately face-painted staff.

The legendary, late-night Tex-Mex diner and bar will drop some new flavours of its mind-blowing frozen margaritas: Devil Chilli (a mix of watermelon, chilli and chilli salt), Walking Dead (passionfruit), Ghost Drop (blueberry), and Poison Apple (sour apple). El Camino Cantina in The Rocks, Sydney lands an additional six exclusive flavours: Skittle Bomb, Mad Scientist (grape), Sour Strap (strawberry), Snake Bite (raspberry), Whizz Fizz (orange) and Potion of Love (lychee). 

All new flavours are served Cadillac-style, with a smooth rich float of Grand Marnier on top, and in two sizes 15oz, $20 and 24oz, $24. Margarita tasting paddles of four, 220ml flavours of choice ($30) are also available at all El Camino Cantina venues.

Dial up the daily Dias de los Muertos rituals with:

  • Terror Tuesdays: new Cadillac taco flavours, including chorizo, feta, mango salsa, jalapenos, feta and coriander; tempura prawn, habanero salsa, guacamole and coriander; and popcorn chicken, shredded iceberg, pico de gallo, chipotle aioli and chives  
  • Wicked Wednesdays: wing roulette – a basket of buffalo wings includes one that is laced in ‘Facemelter’ hot sauce. Also, available are limited-edition habanero and teriyaki sauces
  • Troublesome Thursdays: $20 fajita and margarita combination 
  • Freaky Friday, Sinful Saturday and Spooky Sunday

DJs will entertain every Sinful Saturday. 

DJs and Halloween themes will be the backdrop on Saturday, 31 October, when guests are encouraged to make their El Camino Cantina pilgrimage in costume, and staff will go all-out ghoulish with Day of the Dead face paint.

A two-hour Deluxe Day of the Dead fiesta package ($89 per person), available at all venues from Tuesday, 20 October to Saturday, 7 November, includes tortilla chips and salsa, buffalo wings with blue cheese mayo and guacamole for entrée; chargrilled chicken fajitas served with all the Tex-Mex trimmings; and churros with chocolate and caramel sauce.
