The Arizona Taco Festival is one of Arizona best experiences!  If you love food (tacos to be a little more specific), tequila, margaritas, Lucha Libre Wrestling, more tacos, hot chile pepper eating contest, taco eating contest, music, and more tacos?  Then you need to plan your weekend around the original and the very best taco experience in these united states of america!

The Arizona Taco Festival is an experience you don’t want to miss. To be able to gather in one location and experience over 50 different taco creations is not only a must event, but a gift from the taco gods!  Outside of the tacos, I have to admit the Lucha Libre Wrestling is pretty awesome!  We love how the show comes down to you on the grass!  Trust us, do not miss it!

HOW THE FEST WORKS…
A General Admission ticket provides access to taco-topia. Inside the event, you’ll find about 50 restaurants dishing out $2 tacos and bars and beverage station serving margaritas, beer, water, and soda. The entire festival works on a token system – so you will purchase tokens worth $2 each and use those as cash. Vendors will be on hand to sell other food (mostly desserts) as well. ATMs will be on site, but you can use a credit card if desired.
