LA Taco Festival
August 17 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The LA Taco Festival aims to bring the city together to eat tacos and support a good cause – helping homeless youth succeed. Jovenes, a nonprofit working to help homeless youth ages 18 to 25, created the festival in 2009 as a way to bring people together, support youth, and enjoy tacos. The event takes place on August 17 from noon to 8 p.m. at Grand Park. Admission is free for all ages! Streets around Mariachi Plaza will be closed off to make room for some of East L.A.’s best tacos, live bands, vendors, and much more. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs as seating is limited.
