Come for the Tacos, stay for the Carne’age at Rockin’ Taco Rumble on Friday, March 2, 2018 in Phoenix

Phoenix, AZ — Come for the Tacos, stay for the Carne’age! Arizona’s first ever Rockin’ Taco Rumble will bring the heat, the meat and all the cheesy puns on Friday, March 2, 2018 to Events on Jackson in Downtown Phoenix. Professionally produced by HDE Agency, the Rockin’ Taco Rumble is a taco competition spinoff from the Rockin’ Taco Street Fest held each fall in Downtown Chandler.

“Our Rockin’ Taco Street Fest has been a huge hit over the last six years and we wanted to keep the taco party going. So, I’m excited to present this brand new concept. It’s a smaller, more intimate version of our larger festival. I hope our guests and chefs will enjoy the tacos and a friendly competition,” said Landon Evans, event producer, HDE Agency.

Located at Events on Jackson, 245 E Jackson Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004, 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 also enjoy local craft beer and spirits, live music and delicious desserts.

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 also 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 2018 World Food Championships and mad bragging rights!
