Taco Fest 2017: Saturday, May 6th

It’s all about the tacos at InDowncity’s 6th annual outdoor spring celebration! Enjoy music, dancing, kids’ activities, and of course, delicious food along Westminster Street on Saturday, May 6th from 11 AM to 6 PM.

Taco Fest is free and open to the public, but you’ll find amazing food and drinks for sale from a variety of vendors. Sample tacos from Mijo’s Tacos, Laughing Gorilla, Poco Loco, Tallulah’s Taqueria, and Fugo, and finish with dessert from Millie’s macaron cart and Like No Udder. Wash it all down with drinks from Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails, Trinity Brewhouse, and The Malted Barley tables in Grants Block, or head to the outdoor bar in front of Aurora, 276 Westminster Street.

Enjoy the sounds of DJ Studebaker Hawk while shopping through the always popular Rock n’ Roll Yard Sale featuring records, books, handmade jewelry, and vintage goods. Kids will love making crowns, playing with sidewalk chalk, having their faces painted, getting balloon animals, and more!

Check out the offerings at nearby businesses too! Red Fin Crudo, 71 Washington Street, will have taco specials, and Tom’s Bao Bao, 326 Westminster Street, will offer a special carnitas bao.
