The Return of Boulder Taco Fest | July 27, 2019

Boulder Taco Fest doesn’t play. Unless you count Lucha Libre wrestling as a joke, in which case I challenge you to a match.


Boulder Taco Fest is almost here, y’all. On July 27, 2019, from 12 to 8 p.m. at Foothills Community Park in Boulder, Colorado, Colorado taco lovers will will gather for Boulder Taco Fest 2019. The event is brought to us by Boulder Taco Fest team with support from The Post Brewing Company, McDevitt Taco Supply, Cyclhops, Centro Mexican Kitchen, Jefes, Mojo Taqueria, and so many more. Check the website for full info.


Importantly, and for context, the Boulder Taco Fest won the 2018 award for Best Beer Fest in the Rockies, by Elevation Outdoors Magazine. Why? Because of its awesome mix of great drinks, delicious food, and super fun entertainment.  It’s quickly becoming Boulder’s must-do event of the summer. You’ll enjoy amazing tacos and beer while Luchadores go at it and live music fills the venue. Fun games for all ages will keep a smile on your face all day long.


There will be five craft breweries on site, ten taco vendors, and yes, Lucha Libre wrestling. There’s something to be said for grown men dressed in spande, wearing Mexican masks, jumping off the ropes and diving into each other screaming in Spanish. Nothing beats it. If I recall correctly, there was a bit of wind and a bit of rain last year but this is Colorado and we don’t get scared that easily. We toughed it out, we held on to our plates of tacos, and we chugged our beers before they spilled. And it was a fantastic day.


This year’s Taco Fest is an all day event, so plan ahead. Gates open at noon with the first Lucha Libre match beginning at 1 pm, the last one beginning at 6 p.m., with live music between matches throughout the day. The party’s over at 8 p.m. so make sure you get there before then. You’re going to need time to sample all the tacos and sip all the beers.


See you there.
