We took a year off, in order to get things together and make sure we could deliver a taco / beer / music / art experience you will really enjoy. This year's event combines everything we love about LA into one evening, that happens to fall on Cinco de Mayo!  It is 21+ and will feature the best drinks and micheleadas in addition to our all-star taco lineup.

This year we'll be in the beautiful outdoor garden of La Plaza de Cultura y Artes, under the stars, with the delicious smells of 11 of the city's best taco vendors cooking live for your pleasure. This year's taco line-up is...

Burritos La Palma
Carnitas El Momo
Chichen Itza Restaurant
Guerrilla Tacos
Tacos Punta Cabras
Mariscos Jalisco
Yuca's Restaurants
Tacos Arabes de Puebla

We'll also have some of LA's best live artists doing their thing, including...

Steve Martinez

The music will be on point all night long, with DJs such as...

Metralleta de Oro
Que Madre

Plus we'll have live screen printing from Hit + Run, special one-of-a-kind taco related march, and other fun surprises!
