About this Event

The 1st Annual Margarita Showdown comes to Highland Park, Los Angeles on Saturday, July 20

In celebration of #NationalTequilaDay (happening on July 24), HomeState, a Texas Kitchen in L.A., will host the 1st Annual Margarita Showdown, with support from the producers of EastSide Food Festival. Popular margarita makers from around the city will come together in a light-hearted competition to determine who can make THE BEST margarita in Los Angeles. From ‘tried and true’ classics to modern renditions, the event will feature tastes from bartenders, restaurants, cocktail connoisseurs and more.

  • DRINK: Margarita Showdown’s main attraction will be the many margarita vendors, serving up their take on the drink. Attendees will be able to taste the best margaritas from all over Los Angeles. Each admission tier includes a select number of drink tickets, redeemable at any of the event’s margarita vendors for 8 oz margaritas.
  • EAT: Guests will be able to eat from great food vendors like Triple Beam Pizza, Moo's Craft BBQ , and of course, tacos from HomeState. Food is not included in the admission price of the Showdown, but can be purchased to order directly from the food vendors on-site.
  • MUSIC: Popular DJs spinning music will round out the experience with guests like Stones Throw Records’ Peanut Butter Wolf, Portlandia actor Fred Armisen and more.
  • THE SHOWDOWN: Get involved! The Margarita Showdown will culminate with a “Best in Show” award as selected by a small panel of judges + a popular vote.
  • VIP HOUR: VIP ticket holders will be allowed early entry at 4 PM for the VIP tasting hour! This tasting hour includes all-you-can-drink tastes from the margarita vendors.

THE STORY: One of HomeState’s fundamental goals is to share the food and culture of Texas with the Los Angeles community. Margaritas are a big part of that culture, as well as a big part of the Los Angeles cocktail experience. Margarita Showdown seemed like a natural way to showcase and celebrate the iconic cocktail with the community. To bring you the event, HomeState has teamed up with EastSide Food Festival who recently celebrated their 5 year anniversary with some of the eastside's best restaurants.

CHARITY BENEFACTOR: HomeState and EastSide Food Festival are proud to extend their ongoing partnerships with PATH Organization - People Assisting the Homeless. A portion of ticket sales will go to PATH, a family of agencies working together to end homelessness for individuals, families and communities.

Margarita Showdown is a 21+ event.
