El Palacio Restaurant’s Rockin’ Taco Street Fest started quietly six years ago as a celebration among friends. Now in its second year at Dr. AJ Chandler Park, it brings in more than 10,000 Mexican food-loving fans.

“This year, it features more than 30 taco vendors, taco-eating competitions and music,” says Jen Pruett, public and media relations director at HDE Agency.

The Rockin’ Taco Street Fest on Saturday, September 16 acknowledges Mexico’s Independence Day by serving $2 tacos from restaurants like Modern Margarita, United Lunchadores, La Sala, The Traveling Monk, El Palacio Restaurant and Casa Reys. The menu isn’t limited to that dish. Novelty food items like churros will be available, too.

Salsa dancing, a lowrider car show and wrestling will entertain festival-goers in between bites.

Dubbed San Francisco’s ambassadors of “gypsy rock,” Diego’s Umbrella provide the soundtrack to the afternoon and evening. Mariachi bands will perform in between the act’s sets.
