The Sacramento Taco Party is a one night, charity taco cook-off and tasting event where 15 of the area's best restaurants cook up their top taco so you can help decide who makes the best tacos in Sacramento. It'll be a Taco Tuesday filled with freshly made tacos, craft beer, margaritas and live music in beautiful downtown Sacramento. If you've been to or heard about the Sacramento Burger Battle, the format will be very similar...but with tacos 🙂 All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Food Literacy Center.
2016 marks the inaugural event for the Sacramento Taco Party. This year's event will be held on Tuesday, October 11, 2016. Consider it the Ultimate Taco Tuesday 🙂
VIP ticket holders get in at 6 p.m. and General Admission ticket holders get in at 7 p.m. We'll be serving up tacos and fun until 10 p.m.
This year's Sacramento Taco will be held at Cesar Chavez Plaza
in beautiful downtown Sacramento, CA.
The Sacramento Taco Party
is being organized by Rodney Blackwell, founder of the Sacramento Burger Battle
, as a fundraiser for the Food Literacy Center charity
Stay tuned for ticket information 🙂 Tickets to this charity event will be all inclusive (meaning all tacos, drinks and voting will be included in the ticket price).
Great question! The proceeds raised from the Sacramento Taco Party will benefit the Food Literacy Center
The Food Literacy Center
is a Sacramento based non-profit that educates children on the importance of eating their vegetables. They go into area classrooms to teach cooking classes, share fun nutrition information, and promote healthy food habits at an early age.
Another great question! Once you buy your ticket, pretty much everything is covered. All the tacos samples you can eat, drinks, live music, desserts, a souvenir glass and a chance to vote for your favorite taco.
For VIP guests, your ticket includes early entry into the event, free parking and a few more perks. We may have t-shirts for sale and raffle tickets available for purchase, but if you just want to come and eat, drink and have a great time with your friends, your ticket price has you covered 🙂
Along with the complimentary craft beer,
craft hard soda, and margarita tastings available, we will also have water and other non-alcoholic soft drinks available at no extra charge.
Good question! Yes, we plan to offer vegetarian taco options and the ability to vote for your favorite vegetarian taco of the night!
You MUST be 21 years of age (or older) to attend the Sacramento Taco Party. For insurance reasons and because this event includes beer and margarita tasting, children and anyone under the age of 21 are not allowed at this event. ID's will be checked at the door.
