Taco Wars returns April 29th

Get ready to experience a bigger, bolder, and more epic year of Taco Wars, the region’s largest taco and salsa festival! Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 29th for this free event outside the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium for a delicious and lively celebration of Latino food and culture.

For 2023, they are adding more taquerias, another Casa de Tequila, and offering up more options for everyone in the family. Local taquerias will battle it out for the coveted Golden Taco (Best Taco) and the Golden Molcajete (Best Salsa). A panel of celebrity judges will determine the winner of the Best Taco winner. All attendees will be able to try salsas for free and will have the power to crown the Best Salsa winner.

“Last year was an epic year with over 8,000 people in attendance, so this year we are growing the festival with more food, drink and activities,” said Gregory Kallenberg, Executive Director of the Prize Foundation and Founder of Taco Wars. “Taco Wars is a celebration of the region’s Latino culture, and we are incredibly proud to host this amazing event!”

As you indulge in the best tacos and salsa in town, enjoy live performances and soak in the vibrant, family-friendly atmosphere. Bring the kids along and let them have a blast in the kids’ activity area while you sample all the mouthwatering food. Don’t forget to save some room for sweet treats from other amazing vendors. They are trying to cut down on waste and keep our city cleaner, so the event will feature free Music Mountain water. Be sure bring your reusable, refillable water bottles.

They are proud to support our local taquerias and food vendors, and 90% of food sales will go directly to them. Plus, the festival is free to the public – you won’t want to miss this opportunity to taste the best tacos and salsa the region has to offer.

Get ready for a fiesta of flavors at Taco Wars 2022 – we’ll see you there! Visit www.prizefest.com for more information and to purchase tickets.
