Taco Wars!


What better way to kick off the Cocktails & Culture Festival than with Margaritas and Street Tacos?

Guests are treated to a tequila seminar by Master Mixologist Bobby “G” Gleason, the fabulous all-female Mariachi Buenaventura group, and creative street tacos (even from restaurants that don’t normally serve tacos – woot!).

Participating restaurants feature a special margarita using El Tesoro, Patron or Sauza tequila along with their own version of a street taco… and the public get to votes for their favorite one. The restaurant with the winning taco gets $250 donated to Children’s Cancer Fund of NM in their name. Co-Sponsored by Tourism Santa Fe.

There will be Margarita Trail Passports for sale, and drawings for tickets to the Chef & Shaker Challenge on Saturday, June 3 from 6 – 9 pm.

Tickets are open to the public for $20, and a portion of proceeds goes to the Children’s Cancer Fund of New Mexico. 

Participating Restaurants:

La Fiesta Lounge at La Fonda

Coyote Café


Inn of the Anasazi
