WestWorld and the City of Scottsdale, Presents —

The 10th Annual Arizona Taco Festival

Serving 35,000 Fans and more than 100,000 Tacos 

60 Taco Teams Compete for $10,000 in Prize Money and Awards.

The Arizona Taco Festival is celebrating its 10 Year Anniversary, bringing another year of fiesta fun bringing more competing restaurants than ever, from all around the country competing for $10,000 in cash, while an expected 30,000 attendees feast their way through more than 100 types of tacos throughout the weekend.

The Arizona Taco Festival, Sat & Sun, Oct. 12 & 13, 11 am-7 pm, earned its star status as an event that offers $3 tacos in chicken, pork, beef, seafood, and veggie. An abundancia of Mexican fare will also be celebrated and devoured at the event. Last year, restaurants, caterers, amateurs and nightclub/food spots sold more than 100,000 tacos at this now annual classic taco-topia!

“WestWorld is proud to be host of the 10th Arizona Taco Festival,” said Brian Dygert, General Manager, WestWorld. “For years we’ve watched this event grow into a world-class event, and where better for the largest taco event in the country to be held, alongside Barrett-Jackson and the Arabian Horse Show.”

Good Tacos, Serious Competition & 50 Taco Society Judges. Arizona Taco Festival is a fabulous foodie event and simultaneously a serious taco competition. More than 50 Taco Society judges are sequestered to determine winners in double-blind tests in a closed tent for anonymous scoring. Points are awarded and weighted for presentation, taste and execution. Cumulatively, scores lead to an overall Grand Champion. There will also be a People’s Choice Award to make sure the people have their day-in-taco!

Eating & Fun. Outside the judge’s tent, this exciting festival offers its legendary Tequila Expo — featuring more than 100 types of Tequila, Mezcal, Sotol, Bacanora and more; the Ay Chihuahua! Beauty Pageant; Lucha Libre Wrestling Arena; Hot Chili Pepper Contest; Day of the Dead Wedding; Celeb Chef Cooking Demos, a Hot Sauce Expo, local bands, DJs, and many new

surprises to mark its 10 year anniversary. Most importantly, the festival will grant attendees

access to tacos ($3 each) prepared by 60+ competing professional taco makers, restaurants, chefs, and food trucks.

Show Your Taco Spirit! The Arizona Taco Festival is building a taco squad, to join in on the fun. Whether you’re a pup, performer, or just a taco lover, there are many ways to be a part of the festival: as an officially sanctioned Taco Society Judge, volunteer, Ay Chihuahua! Beauty Pageant, a Hot Chili Pepper contestant, or a performing band/DJ. Visit AZTacoFestival.com
