A huge taco and tequila festival is coming to Manchester for the very first time this September, bringing more than 30 street food tacos and 50 types of tequila with it.

Combining cultural live entertainment with an array of authentic Mexican flavours, those heading down to Taco Town can expect to find an array of different dishes on offer at the event, which will take place at new city centre venue Love Factory later this year.

With room to host more than 5,000 taco and tequila fans at once, it is being branded as the UK’s largest taco and tequila festival.

The festival will spread across four arenas and boast a vast array of different dishes. In addition to the 30 different taco stalls, guests will also be able to tuck into traditional burritos, nachos and tostadas, with plenty of vegan options and even a variety of sweet ‘dessert’ tacos to choose from.

As for drinks, expect plenty of cocktails including hundreds of different margaritas that will range from sweet to spicy, frozen to classic.
