The Jacksonville Taco & Tequila Festival

JACKSONVILLE FL: The Jacksonville Taco & Tequila Festival will be moving to downtown Jacksoville’s Metropolitan Park - a much larger, 17 acre waterfront park that’s played host to some of Jacksonville’s most popular events over the last several decades. The festival will take place Labor Day Weekend and will feature two unforgettable days of music, tacos, and tequila.

Guests can expect mouth-watering tacos & Mexican street fare from over 40 restaurants, food trucks & culinary teams from around the city as well as internationally recognized musicians & performers you won't want to miss. New this year at the festival is an elevated Grand Tasting Experience featuring 50+ craft distillers, art, music, and all day access to a private lounge + air conditioned restrooms. In addition, there will be an enhanced Tequila & Craft Margarita experience for all guests, waterfront Artisan Market, Gameday Tailgate Village, games, and more!

Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 18th @ 11am and will be discounted over 50% for the first 24 hours! The festival is best enjoyed with a Grand Tasting Experience or VIP Pass (Sold Out in 2022) and General Admission tickets include a welcome Margarita or cerveza.

The festival is a fundraiser for several local Jacksonville nonprofits benefiting the arts,  community enrichment and education here on the First Coast and over $100,000 was raised for Jacksonville nonprofits as a result of the 2022 Jacksonville Taco and Tequila Festival.
