How the Festival Works…

A General Admission ticket provides access to a collection of taco makers, restaurants, food trucks and others dishing out $2 tacos. Add bars and beverage stations serving margaritas, beer, water, and soda, and  it’s a taco fiesta! 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.
