More Details on This Weekend's North Texas Taco Festival

Details are firming up for this weekend's first ever North Texas Taco Festival, scheduled to go down Saturday afternoon in Deep Ellum, because is there another way you'd rather celebrate 4/20?

Besides plenty of tacos and other fare from various restaurants including El Tizoncito, Velvet Taco, Revolver Taco Lounge, Taco Party, and La Nueva Fresh & Hot, there will also be a taco battle at the Curtain Club at 12:30 p.m. between chefs Patton Robertson of Five-Sixty, Shana Croft of Hannah's off the Square in Denton, Omar Flores of Driftwood, and The Grape's Brian Luscher. A star-studded judging panel will include TxMo barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn and pizza master Jay Jerrier.

The monthly Deep Ellum Outdoor Market will also be held simultaneously with 40-plus vendors, clearly making Deep Ellum the place to be this weekend. The Taco Festival kicks off at 11 a.m. Saturday and goes till 5 p.m. on the 2800 block of Main Street between Malcolm X and Crowdus; attendance is free but bring cash money for tacos.
