We are very sad to announce that we have decided to cancel the Amsterdam Taco Festival on 20 and 21 November. The government has announced new measures where guests at an event need to stay in their seats. We meant for this festival to be fun (and a little crazy) and that also means being able to walk around and watch the food vendors while their prepare your food and just have fun. Also, due to the increase of COVID-infections we feel we need to help prevent this terrible virus to spread and hosting an event for hundreds of people doesn’t feel right for us right now. Everyone who has purchased tickets will of course get a refund. Right now we have to recover from the news and the decision and make the proper arrangements. But these coming days we will give you more information on how to apply for a refund. We are very sorry and sad for this news. Please all take care and stay healthy! See you soon.
Inspired by the food markets and taco stands in the streets of Mexico City we are bringing the first taco festival to Amsterdam. An indoor festival where you can taste different kinds of tacos, tostadas, empanadas and other Mexican food.
