We are almost a month away from Tacolandia, a New Times signature event. The festivities will go down from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, January 27, 2018, at Phoenix's Margaret T. Hance Park. Good luck eating from all of the vendors. This year, there will be a grand total of some 45 taco wizards serving their best.
Along with tacos, Mexican culture will also be a highlight, with mariachi groups and folklorico dancers performing.
General admission tickets will cost you $25.
What? $25? For tacos? Well, $25 includes all the tacos you can eat. With the right appetite and attitude, $25 becomes a steal. (VIP tickets will cost $45 and include access to the VIP entrance, VIP lounge, and two drink vouchers.)
Drink sponsors include, as of now, Modelo Especial, Clamato, Milagro Tequila, and Tito's Handmade Vodka.
