One Texas city is getting a taco fest. But it’s not Austin

2:18 p.m Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018 Things to Do

Taco fest? Yayyyy. Not in Austin? Boooo.

Austin’s Central Texas neighbor and taco war adversary, San Antonio has announced Taco Fest: Music y Más, a new food and music festival to be held in April, the San Antonio Express-News reports

The festival is set to feature the tortilla-wrapped creations of more than 30 taco vendors and 20 live music acts. According to the Express-News, each taco vendor has agreed to offer at least one $2 taco option, meaning festers could, if they’re so willing, try every taco vendor for $60. 

The festival will be held south of the River Walk at La Villita. 

If you’re a San Antonio native, then maybe this sampling of some of the participating vendors will excite you: Chela’s, Chisme, Don Pablo’s Garibaldi Mexican Restaurant, La Casa de Barbacoa, Los Cocos Mexican Restaurant and Frutería, Mr. Meximum, Soluna, Tacos and Marioli, Tomatillo and Tommy’s Restaurant.

Tickets will cost between $15 and $75 and continue to rise in price leading up to the day of the event, the Express-News reports.
