About the Sacramento Taco Party

Sacramento Taco Party > About the Sacramento Taco Party

The Sacramento Taco Party is a one night charity taco cook-off and tasting event. Our inaugural event will be happening on Tuesday, October 11, 2016.

 

Think of it like the Sacramento Burger Battle  or a “taste of Sacramento” event, but with tacos 🙂 Click here if your restaurant would like to compete!

 

15+ Sacramento area restaurants will be using our farm-to-fork region’s freshest ingredients while they cook up their best tacos during a competition for votes from you and our panel of judges.

 

Attendees get to enjoy live music while sampling the best restaurant tacos. We’ll also have tastings of local craft beer, cider and a margarita competition.

 

All the proceeds from the event will benefit the Food Literacy Center whose goal it is to inspire kids to eat their vegetables. They go into schools and teach elementary school children from low income families the joy of cooking and nutrition.

Thank you for your interest in our Sacramento Taco Party fundraiser.

There is so much interest for this event, yet due to the number of competing food events at this time, the October 11th event at Cesar Chavez Plaza has been cancelled. We will be refunding your ticket and processing fees in the next few days.
We originally intended this event to be a benefit for our charity partner, Food Literacy Center. Yet, because they're a small nonprofit with only six staff, the scale of this event would have taken them away from their core mission: teaching cooking and nutrition to kids in low-income schools.
