Let's Taco 'Bout a Taco Festival, Dallas: Tacolandia Pre-Sale Starts Today
Tacolandia 2016 was epic, and this year promises nothing different.
Last year's Tacolandia festival was an epic display of taco grandeur. In just a few weeks, mariachi bands, ample tequila and some of the best taquerias in the city will once again converge for a delicious evening, this time at the Dallas Farmers Market.
From 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, Tacolandia will fill Dallas Farmers Market with unlimited taco sampling, live music, cash bars with beer and cocktails, and awards for best tacos in various categories. Want tickets? Of course you do. Lucky for you, pre-sale kicks off today. Starting at 10 a.m., use the promo code DOTACOS to snag tickets early. Tickets go on sale to the general public Aug. 4.
If you really, really love tacos, spring for VIP tickets, which get you into the event at 3 p.m. (one hour early), access to the VIP lounge, four drink tickets at a VIP bar (private cash bar available after tickets used) and access to VIP restrooms. From Aug. 1 through Sept. 1, tickets are $25 for general admission and $65 for VIP. On Sept. 1, those prices increase to $30 and $75, respectively. Day-of pricing is $40 or $80.
