Dallas taco festival Tacolandia is in its eighth year, and this year promises to be better than ever. Fest-goers will get access to unlimited tacos from a growing list of Dallas restaurants, including beloved taquerias like Resident and Trompo.

General admission tickets are currently $25 — giving you unlimited taco samples and a cash bar with beer and cocktails — but that price increases to $35 on Aug. 17, the same day $65 VIP tickets become $75. For those who don't enjoy a line, the VIP ticket gets you into the fest an hour early, along with access to a VIP lounge (and bathroom), exclusive taco samples and four drink tickets.
