The North Texas Taco Festival

North Texas Taco Festival


So, we’re helping to throw this thing. And we’re thinking it’s going to be awesome. Follow it on Facebook for all the latest!

The North Texas Taco Festival, the first festival of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, announces its core lineup. On Saturday, April 20, from 11 a.m.–5 p.m., taco lovers from across the region will be able to enjoy tacos from El Tizoncito, Velvet Taco, Rusty Taco, Revolver Taco Lounge, Chile Pepper Grill, Taco Party, Urban Taco, and La Nueva Fresh & Hot Tortilleria. They’ll be serving everything from traditional tacos de trompo and tacos de cabeza al vapor to Mexico City-style tacos and gussied-up selections. There will be a taco for everyone.

The North Texas Taco Festival will also be holding a Taco Throwdown – a cookoff taking chefs,  The Grape’s Brian Luscher and Restaurant Ava’s Randall Copeland, among them, out of the comfort of their own well-known kitchens (where they don’t serve many tacos) and pitting them against each other to see who can create the greatest taco among them. A raffle will be held to select the lucky few to sample all five chefs’ take on tacos, while a panel of judges will determine the final victor.

There will also be musical entertainment as well as refreshments available for purchase. What won’t be for sale, though, are tickets. NTTF is open to the public, who are asked to pay cash for the tacos.

The North Texas Taco Festival, produced by The Taco Trail, Entrée Dallas and the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico in Dallas will be held Saturday, April 20, 2013, 11 a.m.–5 p.m., on the 2800 block of Main Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Crowdus Street, alongside the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market and its 40 vendors.
