Since the Arizona Taco Festival started in 2010 (originally taking place at a dirt lot outside Fashion Square mall) it has grown exponentially, requiring a larger venue to accommodate a much larger crowd. Festival planners as well as 50 plus vendors did their damnedest to keep lines at a minimum, and to their credit, they were pretty successful - minus a few exceptions.
