It’s a tasty combination! Stuffed tortillas and the juices of the blue agave plant (better known to distilled spirits aficionados as tequila) will be taking the spotlight at this June’s ALL-NEW Chicago Taco & Tequila Fest.
As you first enter the gates, your first margarita is on the house, included with your ticket. The festival will feature Chicago’s best tacos and curate a summer cocktail vibe in its can’t-beat location at the north end of scenic Lincoln Park.
Both traditional and exotic ingredient-stuffed tortillas will be smartly paired with tequila-infused cocktails ranging from the Classic Lime, Strawberry Mint, Jalapeno Cucumber, Mango, Passion Fruit, Watermelon, Peach, and Paloma.
The festival will also feature margarita flights, 3-hour tequila tastings, mixologists, art vendors, live island bands and DJs.
Tasting Session: 3:00-6:00pm
Includes 12 tasting tickets to over 20 tequila varieties accompanied by private sounds from a steel drum performance. Mixologists will demonstrate the proper way to prepare tequila drinks and share the history of those drinks around the world.
