Without our vendors, Tacofest would be missing two crucial ingredients. Every year, they donate all of the food and drink at our annual fiesta.

Waterloo Region: we want you to help us thank them! Leading up to the big event, we’ll profile our vendors one by one. So next time you are looking for a great meal or local brew, you know where to turn.

On a Tuesday afternoon, you might find yourself hungry. Hungry, with a craving for tacos. If there’s one thing the good people of Waterloo Region know, it’s that Ethel’s Lounge will curb this craving. It’s true, taco lovers – Ethel’s is coming back for Tacofest 2017 in support of Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More!

This restaurant has been legendary since 1994, serving up made-from-scratch food for over 20 years. Stop by to experience their comforting food and unique atmosphere. Here’s an extra hint: they’ve added live music to their weekend lineup – follow them on Instagram to see who’s playing.

Last year marked Ethel’s Tacofest debut, and they didn’t disappoint. In true Ethel’s style, they brought their signature tacos gringos to the competition. We wouldn’t have had it any other way. Will they continue the tradition in 2017? We can’t wait to find out!
