Montreal Is Hosting A Giant Taco Festival This Summer

Montreal is a foodie paradise,no matter what some people may think. That's why the city is host to so many celebrations of gastronomy. Festivals dedicated to the cuisines of Montreal's diverse communities are especially popular as they showcase the many culinary institutions that already call the city home.

El Mercado Del Taco is one of the most anticipated. After the phenomenal success of its inaugural edition last year, the Taco Fest is set to return in the summer of 2019.

"Approximately 2,500 people joined us last year, which is why we are making it bigger and better in 2019!" the event website reads.

"The Mercado del Taco Festival is an event that celebrates authentic Mexican food, introducing the culture to the Montreal food lovers!"
