More than 10 taco and food vendors are set to participate, including 717 Tacos, Tacos Amigos, Purple Pepper Deli & Farmstand, and White Boy Tacos.

Besides the promise of mouth-watering food being on hand, the festival will feature a lineup of entertainment for visitors of all ages.

Local vendors will be selling merchandise.

General admission tickets are $10. Those tickets grant ticketholders access to the festival, with food and drinks available for purchase separately. Children under 12 can enter for free.
