Bite into LA Taco Fest and Give Back

The tortilla-licious event at Grand Park will raise funds for homeless youth programs.

What to Know

  • Saturday, Aug. 18
  • Grand Park
  • Free entry, but show with money for tacos. Also, donations are welcome

Selecting that first taco, while at taco festival, can stir so many deep and complex feelings.

Should you start with a favorite flavor combination? Jump into the novel and what-does-that-taste-like selections? And how do you pace yourself, when you know there's a real chance you can down a trio of tacos lickety-split, and a half dozen within a half hour?

So many multi-layered questions, but one appetizing answer, of spectacular sort, on the tortilla-terrific horizon: LA Taco Festival.

Entry to the Saturday, Aug. 18 taco to-do? No questions, hemming/hawing, nor deliberating shall swirl through your mind following what we're about to type: It's free. 

Showing with money for tacos? You'll want to do that, as a platterful of taco pros'll be there, ready to asada-up, chorizo-out your day.

Showing with money to donate?

This is a wonderful choice to make. LA Taco Fest, as it has been in years gone by, is, at its give-back heart, a fundraiser. The beneficary? Jovenes, an organization that "... Provide(s) Homes and Hope for Homeless Youth."

The hours are noon to 8 o'clock.
