How the Festival 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 stations 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.

Festival Rules / General Regulations

  • No dogs allowed (except Chihuahua Beauty Pageant participants and service dogs)
  • No lawn chairs or blankets
  • No wheelchair rental
  • No opened drink containers. Sealed water only.
  • Tokens can be purchased with credit card or cash at the gate and cash only inside. There will be ATMs inside and outside.
