The Region’s Best Event

What is Waterloo Region Tacofest?

Waterloo Region Tacofest promises three things: tacos, craft beer, and good times. Proceeds from the event will support Community Support Connections, a local charity that works with hundreds of local volunteers to help over 6,600 people live happily and healthy in the comfort of their own homes.

Not only that, but Tacofest is a celebration of our region’s phenomenal local restaurant and brewery scene.

Oh yeah. We also just so happen to be an event that won Platinum in The Record Readers’ Choice Award during a year in which we did not even happen.


That’s like cool-guys-walk-away-from-explosions cool in the event world. Yes. We’re that cool.

Tacos. Beer. Entertainment. More fun than you can shake a maraca at. Tacofest will blow your mind!
