On Saturday, May 20, 2017, Food-O-Rama Events will host Atlanta’s first margarita and taco battle in historic Grant Park. The event will feature dozens of taco vendors and 10 margarita bars, all battling it out for the top spot.
At the bars, specialty margaritas featuring local restaurants’ unique margarita recipes will feature Goza Tequila, Atlanta’s own award-winning hometown tequila. After trying as many tacos and margaritas as possible, guests will be invited to text a 1-800 number that will be listed on bar wristbands to vote for their favorite taco and favorite margarita. At the end of the day, the winners in “Best Taco” and “Best Margarita” categories will be awarded trophies on stage.
Vendors include Tin Lizzy’s, El Azteca, Mezcalito’s Cantina, Matador Cantina, On the Border, The Chef’s Table, Tex’s Tacos, the Loaded Taco, Let’s Taco Bout It, El Preferido and dozens more. Additionally, the event will feature a makers market featuring arts and crafts, live music and a kids’ zone with bounce houses and other activities. The 2017 Atlanta Margarita + Taco Festival is presented by Tortillas La Banderita, an OLE’ Mexican Foods brand.
