The Arizona Taco Festival is back for an 8th year of epic taco madness. Over 50 restaurants will all serve $2 tacos while bars operated by El Hefe, Salty Senorita, Dos Gringos, and others serve up ice-cold margaritas and cold cervezas. On the menu are over 100,000 tacos with chicken, carnitas, carne asada, al pastor, veggies, shrimp, and many other options. Live bands, lucha libre wrestling shows, eating contests, and a chihuahua beauty pageant are just a few of the entertainment highlights. On Saturday, check out the legendary Tequila Expo ($20 charge), or Sunday’s Margarita Expo ($20 charge), featuring the Valley’s top mixologists. Don’t miss a stop by the world’s only Piñata Petting Zoo or miss the awards at 6:45pm each night, where portions of a $10,000 cash prize purse are doled out to taco teams for various Best Taco contests. Bring the whole family - kids 12 and under are free!
