ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks
Forget “Taco Tuesday.” SteelStacks’ inaugural TacoFest on June 9 aims to prove that Sunday is the best time to enjoy one of America’s favorite street foods. And, it’s hard to argue, with several awesome food trucks serving up some of the most tantalizing tacos in the region. The free admission event, which is open to the public, will take place from 1-7 p.m. at SteelStacks, with patrons purchasing their tacos directly from the vendors. Tickets for the special VIP Sessions, which feature unlimited margaritas made by area mixologists and unlimited steak, fish and vegan tacos, are on sale now at steelstacks.org and 610-332-3378. Cost is $45 per person through May 26, $49.99 per person May 27-June 8 and $59.99 day of the event.
At TacoFest, attendees can enjoy live music from Zaire, Flowers for Taco and Jimmy the Whale while sampling mouthwatering creations from vendors and food trucks lining First Street at SteelStacks. Participants confirmed so far include Clubhouse Grille, Take a Taco, Fud Truck, Grumpy’s BBQ Roadhouse and more. From classic favorites like steak and fish tacos by Take a Taco, to more adventurous items like Korean tacos, jalapeño coleslaw and pork belly nachos by Grumpy’s BBQ Roadhouse, there are delicious options for every palate. Between bites, visitors can purchase and sip refreshing margaritas handcrafted with TEQUILA CAZADORES; mojitos made with Bacardi Rum and a fine selection of Mexican beers. Both tacos and beverages are purchased directly from vendors.
For those looking to enjoy an exclusive experience, there are a limited number of VIP Access Tickets being offered for two TacoFest VIP Sessions in the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks – from 12:30-2:30 p.m. and 3:30-5:30 p.m. VIP access includes unlimited margaritas specially-made by local area restaurants and unlimited steak, fish and vegan tacos; rice; beans; chips and salsa served up by the ArtsQuest Culinary Team at SteelStacks. Among the restaurants taking part in the VIP Sessions are Urbano, Mixology Masters and Copperhead Grill. Following sampling, VIP Session attendees can vote on their favorite drink, and the winning restaurant will be named best of TacoFest and receive a glass-blown trophy from the Banana Factory.
