Just when you thought all the music festivals for the next couple of months have been announced, Taco Fest comes out of nowhere, and includes two things San Antonians appreciate: tacos and live music.
“Taco Fest is a long overdue celebration of San Antonio’s favorite food. From foodie-tacos to classic breakfast tacos, we will showcase in one place the amazing diversity of tacos that make San Antonio famous,” said Taco Fest creative director, Jimmy Mendiola. His team has produced other local festivals, including Día de los Muertos Fest, Maverick Music Festival, San Antonio Beer Festival and Texas Salsa Festival.
The fest will feature more than 20 live bands and DJs, including La Santa Cecilia, Brown Sabbath, Santiago Jimenez Jr., Girl in a Coma, Money Chicha, El Conjunto Nueva Ola, Piñata Protest, Femina-X, Bombasta, Eddie & the Valiants, and more. Music, vendors and local artisans, interactive cooking demos, and children’s activities round out the downtown festival programming.
$15-$50, Sat April 14, Noon-11pm, La Villita Historic Arts Village, tacomusicfest.com.
