The festival, which will take place at The University of Texas at San Antonio Downtown Campus for the first time, will host more than 40 restaurants and taquerías, inviting attendees to eat and vote for their favorite traditional and specialty tacos.
Attendees will find returning champions Catch the Wave and Sangria on the Burg on-site, as well as special guests like Vera’s Backyard Bar-B-Que from Brownsville, Texas, offering traditionally smoked barbacoa.
From noon to 11 p.m., attendees can enjoy a variety of $2 taco options, view cooking demos and artistic shows throughout the festival grounds.
On the music side, the festival will offer live performances from artists including Grammy award-winning singer Lila Downs, Santiago Jimenez, Jr., and a special reunion show with San Antonio band Girl In A Coma.
