Taco Fest: Music y Más 2020

Tickets are no longer available online.

***TACO FEST: MUSIC Y MÁS POSTPONEMENT***

Dear Valued Taco Fest Guests,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are disheartened to have to share that the Third Annual Taco Fest: Music Y Más has been postponed. Taco Fest: Music Y Más was scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at The University of Texas at San Antonio Downtown Campus. At this time UTSA expects to implement social distancing policies through April 12, 2020 at a minimum, and will not be able to host the festival. The festival fully supports UTSA and the City of San Antonio’s decision on erring on the side of caution and will follow its guidelines to help contain this disease.  

We hope you will join us at the rescheduled event at a later date, which we will announce as soon as it's determined. We will share the new date via email and on tacocapitaloftheworld.com, and all pre-sold tickets will be honored for the newly scheduled date; if you prefer a refund, we will honor those within 24 hours of the announcement.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, San Antonio.

Sincerely,

The Taco Fest Team
