Montreal is a city with no shortage of food and summer festivals, two things that motivate tourists from around the globe to flood our streets throughout our best months.  

Montrealers are lucky enough to live in a city with a diverse array of communities, creating some of the most varied culinary experiences in the country. With no shortage of celebrations for each of these food cultures, Montreal is a summer hub for foodies.

The dreaded end of our summer may be rapidly approaching but there is still a slew of amazing events to look forward to. Among them is Taco Fest Montreal, which is taking itself to new heights for the 2019 edition and inviting all taco-lovers to participate.

This three-day Taco Fest will be taking over the Quai Jacques Cartier in Old Port from August 31 to September 2nd and tickets are for sale on the website for only $7.95.

Those who decide to attend the event will be overwhelmed by the countless tacos to pick from โ€” seventy-five types to be exact โ€” and it doesnโ€™t stop there.


Taco Fest will also be serving up guacamole, churros, ice cream tacos and some of the hottest hot sauce you can find.
