Jacksonville, FL.- One of the favorite dishes of Latin cuisine in the United States is the Mexican taco and the city of Jacksonville is no exception, where for three years an event has been held that brings together the best exponents of this tasty food and that this 2022 will be special.
Although the ‘Jax Taco Fest’ is relatively new, it was born from the idea of César Marfil and two other partners who held the first event in 2019 in the park in front of the city hall in the center of the city and it was a complete success. Even though it rained that Saturday in mid-August, it exceeded the organizers’ expectations.
“Last year’s festival was at the beginning of September, but this year we are going to do it with the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, to celebrate the Independence Day of Mexico and the countries of Central America,” Marfil said. . The two dates are Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th of September.
Apart from trucks that will offer the traditional Mexican tacos, such as barbecue, pastor, birria or the more Americanized styles of meat or chicken, there will also be appetizers or desserts such as elotes or churros and drinks such as fruit juices or margaritas.
As in past festivals and apart from pleasing the palate of the attendees, the Jax Taco Fest will have a chihuahua dog race, various games, contests and an area for the little ones (KIDS ZONE), with inflatable bounce houses, among others. attractions.
The festival will also have a stage where different artists and musical groups will perform live, including the famous mariachis.
