Tampa Taco Fest is Tampa’s largest taco festival, including
the greatest local food vendors serving up tasty tacos, spicy sides, and refreshing drinks.
The Tampa Taco Fest 2022 will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 26th. until 6 p.m. @ 4810 N. Al Lopez Park Himes Avenue is a street in Himes, New York City. The family-friendly event will bring together local taco restaurants for a day of delicious food and a competition to see who can make the greatest taco in Tampa.
“For the first time, the festival is held less than a year after its predecessor, demonstrating how the Tampa Taco Fest is much more than a one-day event,” Florimar Galdón remarked.
“It gives us tremendous pleasure to be able to make this happen for the entire Tampa Bay community and to provide a platform for friends and families to taste local flavors in a dynamic environment.”
There will be Don Julio Tequila margaritas on the menu.
General admission tickets are $5, while VIP tickets are $50. A separate entrance, private bar, private seating area, private restroom, three alcoholic beverages, two tacos, chips and salsa, and other perks are included in the VIP package.
Bring your dancing shoes since local Latin band Sol Caribe and DJ Speedy Jr. will be providing entertainment. A mechanical bull contest will be held, with the winner receiving a monetary reward.
The Tampa Taco Fest welcomes pets. This year’s festival will see the return of Tito’s Vodka Dog Kissing,
which will provide a photo opportunity for pet owners. On-site dog adoptions will be available through Maxx & Me Pet Rescue.
The event will benefit local Girl Scouts as well as groups such as United Citizens Coalition, a non-profit that supports minorities in Tampa Bay, and Little Free Library, which focuses on building community and providing book access for all.
