Taco fest is managed locally by EvansvilleEvents.com, who are the organizers for about 6 yearly festivals in Evansville, all of which have attracted thousands of visitors to the area. In the first 2 years, the festival has fundraised $3,000 that was given directly to Fiesta Evansville. Those funds were then given as scholarships for local Hispanic students.
WHAT TO EXPECT At the event, you’ll find over 15 of the area's best restaurants & food purveyors dishing out a variety of $3 tacos (sold separately). There will be bars and beverage stations serving margaritas, tequila flights, ice cold beer, water, soda & more. All items will work on a voucher system – there will be various voucher stations throughout the festival & all vouchers will be used as cash. Additional vendors will be on hand to sell other food (cotton candy, cakes, desserts etc) as well. Multiple ATMs will be on site & strongly encourage cash sales at voucher stations.
