Arizona Taco Festival
October 23 @ 8:00 am - October 24 @ 5:00 pm
If you Love Tacos and “Who Doesn’t Love Tacos™”, then we have the place for you: the Arizona Taco Festival. Eleven years ago, The Arizona Taco Festival created the first ever taco festival in the WORLD. Yepp — that’s right. And thanks to everyone’s love of tacos, we keep growing each year and elevating the taco fest experience for our guests like never before.
Tequila Expo: The famous Tequila Expo features over 100 tequilas for guests to sample. Everything from tequila, sotol, bacanora, mezcal and more will be found.
Taco Gordo Taco Eating Contest: This speed contest tests just how much of a taco devourer contestants are. 10 people on stage in an all out taco pigout to see how many tacos they can put down.
Holy Hot Sauce Tent: Guests get to try the most eclectic and fearsome hot sauces, curated by vic clinco, the owner of the largest private collection of hot sauces in the country.
Music and DJs: All the live music, DJ’s, dancers, wedding, crazy contests and of course our awards ceremony, will go down from here. Get your seat!
Chihuahuas Beauty Pageant: This iconic contest is a real crowd-pleaser. 20+ chihuahuas strut their stuff on stage, dressed in the most outrageous outfits from their zany owners.
Hot Chili Pepper Eating Contest: So you think you’re so hot? Contestants eat their way through 5 rounds of increasingly hotter peppers until one fire-proof palette.
