Time to get your taco tasting on.

On Saturday, May 18, the Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa will host one of Southern California’s largest Taco Festivals where over 30 gourmet chefs and food trucks from across Los Angeles and the Inland Empire will compete to create the world’s perfect taco in the Morongo Outdoor Pavilion.

Guests can devour $2 tacos made with chicken, pork, beef, seafood, veggies – or just about anything. Salsa, guacamole and other Mexican fare will also be celebrated and sampled at this can't-miss Palm Desert food festival.

A General Admission ticket provides access to taco-topia. Inside the event, you'll find almost endless $2 tacos and bars and beverage stations serving agua fresca, margaritas, beer, water, and soda. The entire festival works on a "Taco Token" system - so you will purchase Taco Tokens on-site worth $2 each and use those as cash with the taco vendors. ATMs will be on site, but you can use a credit card if desired.
