HOW THE FEST WORKS...
A General Admission ticket provides access to taco-topia. Inside the event, you'll find about 50 restaurants dishing out $2 tacos and bars and beverage stations serving margaritas, beer, water, and soda. This year you will receive an RFID wristband that will be used for admission into the festival and as your primary form of payment for food and drink. No more waiting in line for tokens – just double tap your wristband to purchase food and drinks. More info here!
