Just in time for sweater weather, San Antonio’s Fideo Loco Festival will warm up local foodies with a Saturday, November 6 celebration of the beloved South Texas dish.
This year’s event will take place at Southside venue Brooster’s Backyard Icehouse from noon to 4 p.m. Along with samples of the comforting conglomeration of pasta, beans and picadillo, attendees will have access to market vendors, music and a full bar.Tickets for the fourth annual iteration of the fest are available online ahead of time for $15, and for $20 the day of the event. Admission includes entrance and unlimited fideo samples. Kids 12 and under will be admitted for free but won't be able to sample food without a ticket.
The first 100 online tickets sold also will include a token allowing the attendee to vote for their favorite version of the dish. That winner will receive the festival's People's Choice title.
Organizers are accepting applications for cook-off teams and vendors until October 15.
Brooster’s Backyard is located at 815 Pleasanton Road.
