Taco ’bout a good way to end the summer.

Starting in August, the Old Port’s Jacques Cartier Pier will welcome over 10,000 taco lovers for a three-day fiesta of Mexican food and culture in what is appropriately titled, Taco Fest.

The long weekend celebration will feature over 75 varieties of tacos, churros, Mexican street corn, and enchiladas from the city’s top chefs and restaurants.

Now might be a good time to invest in some seriously stretchy pants because 75 varieties of Mexican cuisine is a seriously high bar to jump eat over.

Speaking of the bar, taco fans will be able to wash down the delicious dish with renowned sangrias, margaritas, tequila, and mezcal.

Once taco fans have had their fill (literally) of Mexican grub, guests can enjoy a slew of activities including salsa dancing lessons, mariachi bands, and a “guac school” where they can learn the insider secrets of making the perfect guacamole.

Holy moly.

As if that’s not enough, live music and local DJs will keep the waterfront party booming until 11 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Admission tickets are available now and range from $7.95 to $12.95 based on times. Once inside the site, food and drinks will vary in prices, starting at $3.50.

Participating vendors will be announced soon and we’ll be sure to keep you posted with the whole enchilada.
