For those heading out to the Carrousel of the Nations this weekend in Windsor, Ontario, this Mexican sandwich will likely be everything everyone’s talking about.

If you’ve never heard of it, the multi-award-winning Carrousel of the Nations is returning to in-person ethnic and multicultural festivals scattered throughout Windsor and the surrounding area from June 17-19 and 24-26, 2022.

One of the villages will be the Mexican Village hosted by WindsorEats with the support of the Consulado de Carrera de México in Leamington. As part of this celebration of Mexican culture, a unique Mexican sandwich that Windsor has likely never seen the likes of before will be served up and we guarantee will be the talk of the town: the Pambazo.

Pambazo de Chorizo y Papas is a Mexican street food sandwich absolutely filled with deliciousness. It’s a culinary masterpiece featuring a bread dipped in a guajillo pepper broth and then fried before being stuffed with one of Canada’s best chorizo from Robbie’s Gourmet Sausage Company, and potatoes before being topped with house made garlic aioli, cotija cheese, lettuce and thinly sliced sweet onions.

In addition to the pambazo sandwiches, Robbie’s will be serving up Banderillas, which are gourmet Mexican corn dogs stuffed with that same award winning chorizo. Rico Taco Mexican Street Eats will also be serving up a big selection of eats including birria tacos, fish tacos, taquitos, churros, elotes and flour chicharrones.

In addition to a great curated list of lively Latin music playing throughout each night, the Farm Music Band Association will take the stage on Saturday, June 18, 7pm to 930pm as well as Saturday, June 25, 7pm to 930pm. Rumour has it they may even teach the audience how to dance during their performance.

The Farms Music Band Association is formed by temporal farm workers and community members from Leamington, Ontario, who blend their musical talents to play and share their Latin music and culture to different communities through their musical presentations, public performances, videos and other forms of dissemination.
