Salsa, Tequila, & Taco Challenge

August 26, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

$80 – $100

Cocktail craft and culinary creativity are taken to a new level at the 10th Annual Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance’s Salsa, Tequila & Taco Challenge. Tequila-infused popsicles, snow cones, and mixed drinks will surprise attendees with refreshing colors, while kimchi, blueberry-jalapeno, and “Smokeless Fire” salsas will spice up their palettes.

More than 700 attendees support the community while attending this fun event to sample and vote for the region’s best salsa, tequila, and tacos from participating mixologists and chefs. Attendees will experience culture at its finest, combining the culinary arts, live music, and entertainment that highlights the strength and diversity in our community. Join us for one of Southern Arizona’s most colorful summer “foodie” events.

The event will distribute awards from professional judges as well as People’s Choice Awards in over 15 categories to participating restaurants and exhibitors.

​Many chefs and mixologists came to the table to win culinary supremacy, but they are also there to support important charitable causes in the community. This creative collaboration combines resources to help raise monies for SAACA community arts outreach programs and local programming outreach by the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
