Tucson: 7th Annual Salsa, Tequila and Taco Challenge – Sept 3

SAACA fundraiser
Join the fun on Sept 3

The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance joins forces with the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona to present the 7th Annual Salsa, Tequila & Taco Challenge, which will raise funds for both non-profit organizations.

Some of the region’s best chefs and bartenders will be competing against each other to determine the best salsa, taco and tequila cocktail. Local culinary experts will be scoring the competitors anonymously with points awarded for presentation, taste, texture and creativity.

You can learn the differences between tequila and bacanora, enjoy live music and dance the salsa late into the night. After a sip or two of bacanora…you will dance the salsa!

You are also encouraged to vote for your favorites. Everyone has an opinion.
