Taco time again! Oh yeah, that's right! In just two short weeks, you will be able to taste $2 tacos from over 50 different restaurants and food trucks. The deliciousness happens again this year at the Arizona Taco Festival being held at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, October 19 and 20, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
General admission is $12, VIP tickets are $100, Tequila expo is an additional $20. "Well, what does that get me," you might ask. General admission tickets get you in to taste $2 tacos, experience three different live bands throughout the day, a kids zone for the youngsters, Lucha Libre wrestling contests, bars set up by main players such as El Hefe, Salty Seniorita, Dos Gringos and Sandbar, cooking demonstrations that seat up to 75 offering tastes of the food as well, chihuahua beauty pageant, hot chile pepper eating contest, and more. And that's just general admission. VIP tickets get you all that, and then some. For VIP, you can also enjoy six free drinks, free food all day from three different vendors, shade under a tent, DJ's pumping out some tunes, and a free pass to the themed photo booth. These are definitely worth the price.
The Tequila Expo is an additional $20 on top of your VIP or general admission. These sell out fast, so order tickets now if you like tequila. This expo is filled with 30 tequila brands sampling almost 100 different types of tequila combined.
If this is your first rodeo, I highly suggest you check it out. Thousand of people come to eat, drink and be merry over both Saturday and Sunday. I never miss it! The tacos range from typical to out of this world creative and tasty. It just depends on what you prefer. If you are looking for serious action, people watching, and crazy fun, Saturday is the day for you. Sunday is a bit more scaled back, less a of crowd, but just as much fun and action.

One last thing.......there is free parking. But let's be careful folks.....if you plan to consume lots of libations of the alcohol kind, then remember to drink responsibly and have a designated driver.
See you at the Fest!
