START SUMMER RIGHT at this hugely popular event and opening party of the NM Cocktails & Culture Culinary festival! Created by The Liquid Muse Events in 2017, TACO WARS is the place to taste creative street tacos from 20+ exciting venues plus sample cocktails by some of the best tequila and mezcal companies in the world.

WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR?

  • Due to popular demand, we are bringing back live mariachis
  • This year, we have two categories for tacos: Traditional and Innovative. You will vote for your favorite in each category. In addition to a percentage of ticket sales, we will donate $250 to the SF Animal Shelter on behalf of each winning chef.
  • You asked for it… in addition to choosing TOP TACO you will also vote for CONQUERING COCKTAIL, and we will also donate $250 to the SF Animal Shelter on behalf of that liquor brand.

We have 2 ticket levels:

  • $45 general admission to TACO WARS, 6:30 -9:30 pm includes all the tacos you can stuff in your belly plus cocktail samples plus live entertainment. ($55 at door, if available)
  • $65 VIP ticket includes a limited seating, select tasting of additional tequilas and mezcals presented by expert speakers at 5 pm plus priority entrance to the TACO WARS main floor. ($75 at door, if available)

Practice good karma: NM Cocktails & Culture Culinary Festival donates 10% of all Taco Wars ticket sales, plus a $250 cash prize on behalf of the two winning chefs and the winning cocktail ($750 total) to the Santa Fe Humane Society and Animal Shelter
