LA Taco Festival

LA Taco Festival A fundraising event for taco lovers! Help Jovenes Inc. end youth homelessness.
(66)

When we started the L.A. Taco Festival, our goal was to bring our city together for a great cause and highlight the independent small businesses and family-owned restaurants who served the tastiest tacos in town. Since 2011, we’ve continued to expand the festival from its humble beginnings at Mariachi Plaza to an event that now attracts thousands of foodies, influencers, and taco-eating Angelinos. This year, we are excited to move the festival to Grand Park in the heart of Downtown LA. In this new location, the LA Taco Festival will continue its growth as one of LA’s most anticipated events of the Summer.
