Raising money for arts grants...through tacos!


Taco Takedown

DATE: Sunday, April 28, 2019
TIME: Noon - 3:30 P.M.
LOCATION: Cathedral Square, Mobile, AL


Join us for Mobile's first - and only - taco competition! This tasty event will take place on Sunday, April 28th from noon until 3:30 p.m. in Cathedral Square. Tickets are only $15 and available online now. Tickets include entry into the event and three taco tickets to choose your favorite tacos to sample. A cash bar with beer and margaritas will be available to cool down. Sister's Snowballs will also have specialty Margarita, Watermelon Mint, and Tres Leches snowballs available for purchase.

Expect to taste tacos from local favorites Fuego, Roosters, Nourish Cafe, Von's Bistro, Rock 'N Roll Sushi, Taco Mama, La Cocina, and P.S. Taco Company! We will also have live music by Yeah, Probably.

We couldn't make Mobile's first taco competition happen without the support from our media partner, Mighty, and community partner, Hargrove Engineers + Constructors and The Hargrove Foundation! We also want to thank T.S. Wall & Sons, Inc., the Law Office of John M. Teague, P.C., Container Yard, and DS Services for their sponsorship. Funds raised from this delicious event will go towards re-launching our artist grant program.

For $75, your restaurant can showcase their unique take on tacos! Send an email to Shellie at director@mobilearts.org if you are interested in participating.

Prizes will be awarded for People's Choice and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Awards will be created by local artist, Lucy Gafford.
