Welcome, Taco Lovers!

You Eat… Tacos Compete!

A General Admission ticket grants you access to feast in a taco-topia of tacos where professional taco makers, restaurants, food trucks and others gather to dish out $3 tacos.

Add bars, bands and beverage stations serving margaritas, beer, water, and soda, a boutique Tequila Expo with over 100 top shelf brands to sample, Lucha Libre Mexican Wrestlers, a Chihuahua Beauty Pageant and so much more! It’s a Taco-Wonderland.

All Taco Teams on-site will be competing head-to-head to be declared as the regional Top Taco, in the sanctioned championship by The Taco Society, leading to the $100,000 Grand Championship in Las Vegas!
