Welcome the season with a Fiesta! The colors of spring usher in the colorful and flavorful afternoon on the famous Destin Harbor at the Taco and Tequila Festival in Destin! This tantalizing, tasty weekend offers all kinds of tequila tastings and fun contests accompanied by lively tunes. But, of course, the center of attention is the tacos and the tequila at this signature HarborWalk Destin event on Saturday, March 9, from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Through there will be authentic Latin tacos galore, you can curb your urge for more than the traditional tortilla with a variety of creative fillings of all kinds. Pair your tacos with a diverse and smooth selection of over 10 varieties of tequila, such as spiced habanero or smokey agave, paired with fish, shrimp, beef and authentic Latin tacos and tropical margaritas.
This year, this lively taco and tequila festival Destin returns to the amazing and scenic Harborwalk Village in the heart of Destin overlooking the newly, revitalized Norriego Point and emerald, green waters of Destin’s historic East Pass and Harbor. There’s plenty of spacious parking and lots of things to experience, making it easy, safe and fun!
Combine the bits and sips, aesthetic beauty and festival energy with live music on three stages and this is a winning combination for your weekend in Destin! Sponsored by Crab Island Cantina, the restaurant that brought the ‘authentic Mexican taco’ to the Destin Harbor, you can feel good about each sip or bite you take as proceeds will benefit Hurricane Michael relief efforts, making this one of the most feel-good events in Destin, FL this year!
Don’t miss out! Get your mom, sweetie or favorite eating and drinking buddy a ticket for a weekend of culinary experiences and tasty tequila beginning Friday, March 8 at 7:00 p.m. Join the Tapas & Tequila Kick-Off Party with Garden & Gun magazine featuring music from the Nashville band, Humming House.
