Pupusa Festival this Sunday

Pupusa Flyer_v3

From an email:

“Join Sacred Heart for a pupusa festival on June 21, 2015 (located at 16th and Park Rd from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Come eat and learn to make handmade pupusas.

These are hand made by the ladies of the church and are delicious. Many of our parishioners are from El Salvador so it doesn’t get much better than this.”

    This sounds great! Can’t wait to check it out!

  • This sounds tasty!

  • Didn’t know there was still much of a Salvadoran community in DC. Columbia Pike is pretty loaded with pupuserias, but I guess Mt. Pleasant can also bring some action too.

      Sacred Heart draws Central Americans from far and wide. Many who lived in the neighborhood 10+ years ago and have since been displaced still come to church here.

        Sacred Heart has such a great community feel. There are lots of Spanish speakers, but mass is also celebrated in Vietnamese, English and Haitian Creole, which draws parishioners from those populations, as well. A lot of parishioners send their kids to the adjoining bilingual Spanish-English school. I know some of the students who go there and they seem like bright, happy individuals. It must be all the pupusas that they get to eat. 🙂

      • Displaced? Really? That is a stretch. People that can’t afford something aren’t displaced.

  • For me – its all about the curtido

    Father’s Day!

  • Sounds really good, but be prepared for lines. I went to a tamale fest in that area a month or two ago and the line was down the block with people waiting to get in. I think those organizers were unprepared for such a huge turnout.
