Taco Fest: Music y Más is the newest food festival planned for April 14 at La Villita in San Antonio, from 12-11 p.m, featuring live bands, DJs, and, of course, 30 taquerias ready to take your order! Tacos and tunes are tough to beat, but with 20 live bands and additional music scheduled, you’re going to get more than your money’s worth! And, speaking of money, each of the food vendors which will be participating is offering at least one taco at a cost of $2, in addition to their other menu items.

Organizers of the event are saying it’s “…the greatest offering of San Antonio tacos ever assembled.” Taco vendors that have already been announced include La Casa de Barbacoa, Tommy’s Restaurant, Don Pablo’s, Soluna, Tomatillo’s, Chisme, and Garibaldi Mexican Restaurant with much more on the list. The musical lineup includes Eddie & the Valiants, Girl in a Coma, Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath, Santiago Jimenez Jr., Piñata Protest, La Santa Cecilia, Money Chicha, El Conjunto Nueva Ola, Femina-X, and Bombasta.

Festival vendors will be competing in a variety of taco categories which include Breakfast to Puffy and all types you can imagine, so bring your taste buds and your love for this treat (which should honestly be considered the state food of Texas), and get ready to be rocked! Tickets for the event presently cost $15 to $75, and children, aged 10 and under, will get in for free. Ticket prices will rise throughout the actual day of the event, however, and if you’re looking for more information, you can visit the festival website link provided here.
