For 8 years, cocktail craft and culinary creativity is taken to a new level at Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance’s Annual Salsa, Tequila and Taco Challenge. Tequila infused popsicles, sno-cones, and mixed drinks will surprise attendees with refreshing colors, while kimchi, blueberry-jalapeno and “Smokeless Fire” salsas will spice up their palettes.

More than 1,000 attendees support the community while attending this fun event to try the best salsa and tequila in the region from participating mixologists and chefs. Attendees will experience culture at its finest; combining the culinary arts, live music, and entertainment that highlights the strength and diversity in our community. Join us for one of the most colorful summer “foodie” events in Southern Arizona.

The event will distribute awards from professional judges as well as People’s Choice Awards in over 20 categories to participating restaurants and exhibitors..

Many chefs and mixologists came to the table to win culinary supremecy, but they were also there to support important charitable causes in the community. This creative collaboration combines resources to help raise monies for SAACA Creative Arts Therapy Programs, and local programming outreach by the Community Food Bank.
