San Diego Reader's Tacotopia Returns For Third Year This May 13 | Save On Passes & Enter To Win VIP Tickets

April 15, 2017

The San Diego Reader is continuing its search to find the best taco in San Diego, and at the 3rd annual Reader Tacotopia at Golden Hill Park on Saturday, May 13, over 50 of the top eateries from San Diego, Los Angeles and Tijuana will compete for bragging rights. The best part about Tacotopia is that attendees pick the champion. After tasting signature tacos from as many restaurants as possible, ticket holders vote for their favorite vendor and the one who receives the most tokens wins the title of "Best Taco"! We're giving away 2 VIP tickets to this already-almost-sold-out event and also offering promo code SDVILLE for $5 savings on any ticket type. Read on for all the details and be sure to enter.

At Tacotopia while you eat your weight in tacos and bask in the San Diego sunshine, there will be live music from some of Tijuana's best bands, as well as a full cash bar serving beer, wine and cocktails. General Admission tickets for this 21+ event are currently only $40 ($50 at the door) and provide entry from 1pm-4pm and include tacos from all vendors while supplies last. VIP tickets are $55 ($65 at the door) and provide early entry starting at noon, as well as samples of all tacos and 2 drink tickets. Use promo code SDVILLE when buying your tickets online to save $5 on any ticket type. A portion of every ticket sale and all proceeds from the cash bar benefit The Golden Hill Community Development Corporation, working to improve this wonderful community while preserving its historical and unique character.
