Taco & Tequila Fiesta
Cinco De Mayo at SoCal
Prepare yourself for a week-long fiesta of tacos, tequila, live entertainment, ‘My Taco Rules’ championship, charity street-art battles + a HOT chilli eating contest!
We are launching our first ever Taco & Tequila Fiesta this May to commemorate Cinco De Mayo. This annual holiday in Puebla, Mexico, recognises the unlikely victory of the Mexican army over the French army on May 5, 1862.
We’ll take you from Southern California down the coast to Mexico for daily pop up of events, a #droolworthy dessert by Andy Bowdy, plus we’ll be dressed to impress thanks to our friends at Olmeco ALTOS – think Mexican picado banners, cacti for days, colourful flower crowns, sombreros + more!
