Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

The seventh time is the charm. That's what we're counting on as the Houston Press and taco lovers get together in person once again this coming October for Tacolandia, a celebration of all things taco at The Water Works at Buffalo Bayou.

General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now for the October 16 event sponsored by Mission Foods. The outdoor taco sampling already has a number of taco makers signed up with more added each week.

The event takes place from 4-7 p.m. (it opens an hour earlier for VIP ticket holders) and includes unlimited taco samples. It includes cash bars with beer, wine and cocktails as well as awards for best tacos in various categories. VIP ticket  holders also get three drink tickets and access to VIP restrooms.

Tickets are $25 for General Admission and $65 for VIP. All Guests must be 21+, with a Valid I.D. Rain or Shine. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Kids' Meals.

Visit the Tacolandia website or Facebook for more information.

The health and safety of Tacolandia and Houston communities remains our top priority. We are working closely with local and state officials to create the safest event experience possible. As protocols continue to evolve rapidly regarding public gatherings, our guidance for best practices to be followed at the event are also evolving. Once final protocols are established, we will post all requirements for attendees to adhere to prior to the event date on our website.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
