Entry tickets will be available online, and we recommend that you book yours as soon as the organizers start accepting bookings. For the love of tequilas¸ there will be a separate tent for Tequila Expo, where you can enjoy the best of agave-based spirits and learn abouttequilas from the makers. You need a separate ticket for that, but one small $20 fee allows you to enjoy 10 samples of exquisite and premium tequilas. Also, there will be cocktails and other things that you can try.
Take part in taco eating contest

You have six minutes, and you are supposed to finish 6 tacos as quickly as possible. That may sound easy, but we promise that the fun will double up because you have to complete eating an entire taco for it to count! You can sign up for this contest directly at the event.
