Who Doesn’t Love Tacos?
The Arizona Taco Festival occurs each fall in the month of October. During the event, everyone from Valley restaurants to amateur competitors will sign up for their chance to taco-battle it out for $7,500. Expect a huge VIP Tent, Lucha Libre wrestling, beer donkeys, a main bar experience sponsored by a local taco shop, a Margarita Challenge, hot chile pepper eating contest, and a Boutique Tequila Expo Tent featuring over 30 different brands of premium tequilas, a kid’s zone, and so much more.
The 30 competitive taco teams will cook off in any combination of four categories—chicken, beef, pork, and seafood—while sometimes also entering the salsa and guacamole contests as they chose. Teams will bring their food trucks, hottest booth decor, and crazy surprises.
All of this for only $10 to enter and $2 per taco sample. Of course, there’s a VIP ticket, too!
