Mark your calendars and brace your taste buds - the Tequila & Taco Festival is coming to San Diego. On March 25 and 26, tequila and street taco vendors will line the Embarcadero Marina Park South for a weekend filled with tastings and entertainment.

Each day, guests can enjoy tacos, craft beer, art vendors and, of course, tequila-filled margaritas. While the festivities last all weekend, guests can sample an array of tequila brands exclusively on Saturday. Visitors can expect to enjoy tequila from Dulce Vida Tequila, 3 Crowns Distillers & Importers, The Bloody Cure and many others.

As guests excite their palates, live music from the festive SambaDá and Adelaide bands will keep the party going.

Proceeds from the weekend will benefit the Gen Giammanco Foundation, a cause that supports deserving college-bound athletes.

The 21+ event begins at 11 a.m. each day and ends at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $40 Saturday’s tequila sampling; $60 for premiere two-day passes.
