This spring, San Diego’s Tequila & Taco Festival will be making its debut at the beautiful Embarcadero Marina Park South in Downtown San Diego on the weekend of March 25th and 26th, 2017. The festival will feature exclusive tequila sampling exclusively on Saturday, with entertainment, good eats and other libations for guests 21 and up available throughout the weekend.
Performing will be LACMA Latin Sounds showcase alum SambaDá, bringing their afro-samba-funk energy to the main stage – and with it, a little taste of Brazil to the streets of Downtown San Diego. Dubbed the West Coast’s hottest Brazilian band by their fans, journalists and promoters alike, SambaDá have been electrifying stages with explosive Carnival-like performances for nearly two decades. Also performing at the festival will be Cumbia and Spanish-language rock outfit Adelaide, who have become Disneyland’s resident Latin dance and rock representatives.

While there will be no tequila tasting for Sunday’s Mas Margaritas, a wide array of delicious margaritas and other beverages will be available for purchase.
