Texas just can't get enough margaritas and we aren't complaining. Waco, Texas is having a massive Margarita and Salsa Fest this summer on August 24th at the Extraco Events Center. For an insane night of margs, Tex-Mex, music, and more, you need to check it out when its in town!
Starting at 6 p.m. you will be able to taste different types of homemade salsa for free at the incredible festival. The fest will host a huge contest to see who makes the best salsa margaritas around town, and will not want to miss it. You don't have to be a professional food tester to join the competition and there is no entry fee, so get ready to eat up!
During the event, you will be able to sample margaritas by purchasing a sample cup for $10. You can also get giant frozen margaritas if those are more your style. The event will have live music with performances by John Baumann, Aaron Watson and Gary Allen starting at 7 p.m. The concerts are of no additional charge so you just have to come in and enjoy.
It is not yet known which restaurants will be participating in the salsa and margarita competition and tasting, but we can expect them to bring their A game. If you do plan on joining the competition, you won't have to worry about being judged along with your favorite chefs as they will compete in a different category from smaller local individuals.
