January 27, 2019

San Diego Reader is continuing its search to find the best taco in America's Finest City at the often imitated, never duplicated, all-inclusive Tacotopia. Taking place at Golden Hill Park on Saturday, May 11, the 5th annual event will feature over 60 of the top eateries from San Diego, Los Angeles and Tijuana competing for taco bragging rights. Tacotopia attendees also get unlimited beer samples from more than 20 breweries. We're giving away 2 VIP tickets to this always-sold-out event and also offering promo code SDVILLE for $5 savings on any ticket type (including ticket packages). 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 the area's top bands, lucha libre wrestling, live art demonstrations, beer tastings from 20 breweries, and a cash bar with full pours of beer, margaritas, wine and cocktails. All proceeds from the cash bar will benefit The Greater Golden Hill Community Development Corporation. One of the best parts 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"!
