Bringing the carne’age back on March 1, 2019 at Rockin’ Taco Rumble – it’s time to meat your maker

Hde Agency | November 15, 2018

Come for the Tacos, stay for the carne-age! Arizona’s second annual Rockin’ Taco Rumble will bring the heat, the meat and all the cheesy puns on Friday, March 1, 2019 to Heritage Square in Downtown Phoenix. Doors open at 6 p.m., then it’s time to let the taco slinging begin! Sample every, single, delicious, taco from 15 local taco makers and be sure to vote for your favorite in the People’s Choice competition. Guests will enjoy local craft beer and spirits, live music and delicious desserts and sides.

Last year’s champion was chef Teja Lujan with Taco Guild – beating out the competition with judges and people’s choice. This year, the competition really heats up with even more excitement at a bigger venue with more competitors hungry for the win.

Presale admission tickets are $45 online and admission will be $55 at the door. Admission includes unlimited taco sampling, six drinks, and a vote for people’s choice best taco. Rockin’ Taco Rumble is a 21 + over event.

In addition to the People’s Choice, there will be a panel of local foodies, media and chefs casting a vote for their favorite tacos in the Judges Choice category. One winner in each category will take home a $500 cash prize, a trophy, a Golden Ticket to compete in the 2019 World Food Championships and mad bragging rights!
