What goes better than tacos and tequila? Not much. San Diegans love their tacos as much as oxygen, so I’m excited to attend the second annual festival.
San Diego’s Tequila & Taco Festival will be returning to the beautiful Embarcadero Marina Park South in Downtown San Diego on the weekend of April 21 and 22, 2018. The festival will feature exclusive tequila sampling exclusively on Saturday, with entertainment, good eats and other libations for guests 21 and up available throughout the weekend.
Performing will be multi-cultural supergroup Patron Latin Rhythms, a collaboration of well-seasoned professional musicians with an equally diverse catalog, ranging from Latin Jazz to old school R&B and back again. Also performing at the festival will be Cumbia and Spanish-language rock outfit Adelaide, whose electrifying performances have become Disneyland’s resident Latin dance and rock representatives, with others to be announced.
Confirmed brands participating in the festival’s Saturday-exclusive tequila tasting include: Hacienda Vieja; Real de Jalpa; Suerte Tequila; Pochteca; Ghost Tequila; Corazon Tequila; Stoller Imports; Tequila Gran Dovejo; La Luna Mezcal; Puente-Internacional; The Bloody Cure; Libre Spirits Company LLC; and Tequila Revolucion – with many more to be announced in the coming weeks. While there will be no tequila tasting for Sunday’s Mas Margaritas, a wide array of delicious margaritas and other beverages will be available for purchase.
Additionally, attendees can expect to enjoy delicious gourmet street tacos from a variety of food vendors, including: VIP Catering; Sandbar Grill; Wedos Tacos; Aqui Es Texcoco; San Diego Taco Company; Baja Style Fish Tacos; Chef TLC’s Sidewalk Café; Famoso Mexican Street Food and more.
The Tequila & Taco Festival will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 12:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. (Tequila sampling is 12:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.) and Sunday, April 22, 2018 from 12:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M. Saturday tequila sampling tickets are $40. General admission tickets are $10 per individual Saturday and Sunday ticket. Premiere 2-Day passes are available for $60. Individuals must be 21 years of age or older with a valid ID to enter the festival and to consume alcohol. There is no tequila tasting on Sunday. Tickets will also be sold at the door while supplies last.
