On Oct. 15, more than 3,000 people will converge on City Hall Plaza with a singular goal: to eat as many tacos as possible.
Dallas Observer Tacolandia, now in its second year, promises to be a barbacoa bonanza, with taquerias like Come Taco, Revolver Taco Lounge, Taqueria Ventana and Trompo all serving up tacos and competing for awards doled out by a panel of hungry, taco scholar judges. We've got plenty of vendors on tap, but we've got room for more. You supply the tacos and we'll supply two tables, linens, plates/cutlery, signage and permit. If you want to apply to be a vendor, act fast — Tacolandia is next weekend, and taco fans are a hungry bunch.
Bring your A-game, taco-slingers. Click here for more details about the fest and to buy tickets.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
