The feast day will be filled with tastings, art, and performances. We will have a curated selection of 35+ of the best food trucks from all over the Bay Area serving their best rendition of a taco. All plates will be $5 or less. Short rib tacos, nacho tacos, Vietnamese shrimp tacos, and even ice cream tacos is just a sample of the day’s menu. Tacos in the competition will be voted on by attendees. Finalists will be judged by a celebrity panel and prizes will be awarded based on quality and presentation. The onsite Firehouse building will be converted into a VIP area with all you can eat tacos and open bar.
While food is the main attraction, various entertainment options will be provided for the crowd. A music program entitled, “Concert in the Park,” will be placed with various live musical acts throughout the day. There will be a kids area near the stables with pinatas, balloon artists, and face painters. Luche Libre (Mexican-style masked wrestling) with full wrestling ring will also occur throughout the festival. A selection of approximately 20 art, jewelry, clothing vendors and community partners will also have a presence at the event. The taco festival will also play host to the second annual US Air Accordion Championship
