Tacos & Tequila Festival

Ever look at a bottle of tequila and think that you would like to try it, but it has a heavy price tag? Tacos and Tequila Festival is an economical way to try all the tequila without spending for a full bottle. This boogie event focuses on higher-end tequilas and some that you may or may not be familiar with. Pair your tequila with some fabulous food that will be served.

Not a fan of tequila? Grab a beer from Grove City Brewing, who will be on hand serving up two of their very hand-crafted brews. Must purchase separately from the tequila tasting tickets.

Tickets are $30 for eight tickets, and most tequilas are one ticket per taste, but some are higher ticket costs.

This is a cash-only event.

July 15th, 1 pm – 10 pm Tacos and Tequila is held at the corner of Arbutus and Park Street.
